On Monday, February 3rd, Dr. Annie Abram and Ms. Vednita Carter, Founder and Executive Director of Breaking Free, will discuss Human Trafficking.

"Human trafficking is a form of modern-day slavery. Victims who are forced, defrauded or coerced into labor or sexual exploitation. It is estimated that approximately 800,000 to 900,000 victims are trafficked annually across international borders, and between 14,000 and 17,000 of those victims are trafficked into the US.  These estimates include men, women and children.  Trafficking is a crime which is often hidden from view and difficult to identify."

Whether it's your child, spouse, your co-worker or the person behind the counter at the dry cleaners, how you interact with others is what makes up the fabric of your day. Coping, cajoling, conceding or just standing your ground could all be invoked over the course of an hour. How you respond can either make or break your day. On Relationships Matter, we will peel the onion, helping you to understand your interactions with others so that you can create meaningful communications with the people in your life.  Join Dr. Annie Abram and expert guests for a deeper understanding of your relationships, how to make them better and most importantly how to make them matter.
