Human Trafficking Solutions

Alternatives for Girls

Deena Policicchio will share her 19 years of experience working with exploited young girls and women. She will speak at the Citizens for Peace meeting on Tuesday, June 10th.  The meeting is at 7 pm. at Unity of Livonia (28660 Five Mile Rd). Ms. Policicchio is the Director of the Outreach & Education Services Department at Alternatives For Girls (AFG).

AFG is a Detroit-based nonprofit organization providing services to girls who need respite and resources from predators. These efforts help participants to heal and move forward with their lives. When talking about the girls traumatized by exploitation, Ms Policicchio has stated: “the damage on their psyche is worse than being at war.”

In the last several months, Citizens for Peace have been collecting travel- sized 
toiletries to donate to the Alternatives for Girls. If you would like to contribute, please
bring your donations to the meeting. Bring a friend.
