Latest email from Co-Founders of U-ACT

"Hello again, and happy December!

We've come across quite a few interesting and amazing pieces of information and opportunities in the past week and wanted to keep everyone informed. Please respond to this email for further information on any of the following opportunities:
1. Laura Pope is hosting another book club discussion group this coming Tuesday, December 15 @ 7pm. The group is reading The Road of Lost Innocence by Somaly Mam. Come and bring friends if you're available! Respond to this email for directions or further info.
2. Attached are two documents from Not For Sale addressing fair trade Christmas purchases and new info about the electronics industry. Please take time to read over the information and pass it along to friends and family! Awareness is half the battle!
3. World Hope International maintains a human trafficking assessment center in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. World Hope regularly takes trips to visit this assessment center, and as of now, 2 spots remain open for anyone interested in traveling with the World Hope group. Information is as follows: "There are two possible openings on a trip from Feb. 13-22, 2010. If you--or someone you know--is interested in a trip for those dates, please let me know ASAP."Ginny Cockerill Hope Corps Overseas Volunteer Coordinator ginnycockerill@worldhope.net World Hope International
4. The SOLD Project is looking for Spring and Fall 2010 Interns. Information is as follows: "The SOLD internship is an unpaid 12-week commitment that includes education about child prostitution, helping to expand the SOLD network and leading film screenings. In most cases interns will join the team remotely, so it is absolutely critical that an applicant be a self-starting leader who is able to complete tasks and stay committed with limited supervision." -courtesy of The SOLD Project(www.thesoldproject.com/team/)"
