Panel of experts and neighborhood organizing to follow showing of “Indoctrinated, the Grooming of Child Prostitutes” by Lemon Grove filmmaker Jim Ellis

By Helen Ofield, Lemon Grove Historical Society

April 8, 2017 (Lemon Grove) -- Right here, right now, in our town...tough though it is to think of Lemon Grove as a haven for human sex traffickers, it is. This heinous crime is alive in our town. Predators are after our girls and boys. This, in a town where every neighborhood is anchored by a public school and volunteerism has been a tradition since 1890.

This squalid crime, which victimizes our most vulnerable residents, our children, cries out for action from YOU. Don't look away. If you have children and/or grandchildren, or nieces, nephews and neighbor children, prepare to defend them now:

Monday, May 8, 2017 at 5:30 p.m.

Alvarez Auditorium at Lemon Grove Academy

7866 School Lane, Lemon Grove

You're just coming off the freeway from work, so we'll have refreshments for you at 5:30 p.m. 

At 6 p.m. we start work. First, we view the 30-minute documentary, "Indoctrinated: The Grooming of Child Prostitutes," by Lemon Grove filmmaker Jim Ellis.

Then, we hear from a panel of experts (Sheriff, Schools, Rescuers and others), who will take your questions.

Then, we establish Neighborhood Committees for EVERY NEIGHBORHOOD. We strategize. Think about this and bring your ideas for the panel.

Lemon Grove has no bigger fans than its historical society, service clubs, schools and city hall. And you. Together, we can save our children from a fate that is, truly, worse than death.

Love is not enough. Organize! To the barricades! Show up!
