Greenville’s rapid growth has brought many benefits to the community, as well as some intense challenges. One of those challenges, which is often considered to be reserved for larger markets but not somewhere like Greenville, is human trafficking. With the nature of this underground industry, it means that our community is still uncovering just how pervasive this issue is for women in Greenville. The JLG is partnering with Jasmine Road and SWITCH. Both of these organizations have been pioneers in helping to address human trafficking in our community. The Human Trafficking Impact Committee is providing trained and skilled JLG volunteers to support these organizations as they continue to grow and scale to meet this need.
