Several women's organizations are teaming up to host the fourth annual Stop Human Trafficking workshop from 1 to 2:30 p.m. Jan. 12 at Bear Creek High School, 10555 N. Thornton Road, Stockton.

Adam Cortes, from En Una Sola Voz (One Voice) in Lodi, and Elizabeth Medina, from Open Doors in Sacramento, will be the keynote speakers.

    Its true that it is hard to combat human trafficking, and the situation at our borders make it more difficult. However there are people being exploited currently that are US citizens. Sex trafficking is an issue that is growing every day and in many communities affects its own citizens.

    It's kind of had to stop human trafficking or trafficking of any kind while we have such open and porous boarders.

They cite limited seating, costs and unpredictable weather at the Grape Bowl. But others say graduations at the Grape Bowl are an important Lodi tradition, and one reason many supported renovating the stadium. What do you think?
