Get Involved

The Stepping Stones Network has been formed to encourage individuals and organizations to GET INVOLVED in fighting sex trafficking and modern day slavery.

If you are interested, the best first step is to attend one of our monthly GET EDUCATED meetings. You will learn about the issue of sex trafficking, what’s happening Lake County and Chicagoland, and how Stepping Stones Network and our community is responding.  If you are looking to Volunteer or GIVE, you will hear about options at the end of the meeting. 

These meetings are held on the third Monday of every month from 7:00-8:30 pm via Zoom video conferencing.   Register to attend and receive an invite here
