DETROIT -

The House of Help Community Center, along with Senator Judy Emmons, will host the SOAP (Save Our Adolescent from Prostitution) event Saturday for National Human Trafficking Awareness Day.

The event, which takes place at the Community Center at 23700 Clarita in Detroit, will feature author Theresa Flores of "The Slave Across the Street," a book that tells her story of being a victim of human trafficking at the age of 15.

Flores, who has been invited as a guest on "The Today Show," MSNBC's "Sex Slaves-The Teen Trade" and "The 700 Club," and featured on "Nightline" and "America's Most Wanted," will share her story with guests.

A new bill was recently passed through the Michigan Senate, "the Theresa Flores law," by Emmons.

The event will begin at 8:30 a.m. Saturday with prayer through 9:30 a.m. The SOAP event will then last from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
