NOTE: Agenda to follow. Security check-in is required.

As a valued leader in the East Valley we are inviting you to learn more about steps our local law enforcement are making to counteract the crimes associated with sex trafficking.
We want to receive your input as we discuss how our public safety personnel are working on our community's behalf to lead the fight against sex trafficking in our neighborhoods. Armed with this information and a strategy to combat those who prey on our most vulnerable, we believe you will find the time informative as local law enforcement and advocates inform us of their developing strategies to keep our cities safe.

As V.A.S.T. embarks on their mission to join forces with business, community and public safety leaders in taking a stand against the fastest growing criminal enterprise in our state, we hope you come to recognize how crucial your support is in eliminating the national plague of sex trafficking.

Guest Speaker - Erik Bauer

A Trial Attorney with 30 years of experience practicing out of his home base in Tacoma, Washington, has tried a variety of cases in State and Federal Courts, ranging from death penalty murder cases to personal injury claims. His early career was primarily felony defense work. Recently, he has focused on representing abused children, and adults who were abused as children, in successful lawsuits against the perpetrators and other responsible entities.

Currently, Mr. Bauer is highly focused on several cases involving minor plaintiffs in lawsuits against Backpage.com, a website devoted to human sex trafficking advertisements. He is the only attorney to have successfully defeated Backpage claims that a Federal Immunity Statute (CDA § 230) prevents minors from suing Backpage. Because of Mr. Bauer’s efforts, his minor trafficked clients are able to seek monetary damages.
