Human Trafficking and the Super Bowl
October 14, 2017 @ 8:30 AM - 11:00 AM
Carinda Horton will present “Human Trafficking and the Super Bowl” at the October 14 meeting of the Metro Republican Women. The monthly breakfast meeting is held at the Mendakota Country Club.
“Human Trafficking is the 21th Century form of worldwide slavery of the vulnerable,” said MRW President Margaret Flower. “This is the topic for Minnesota this year.”
Horton has shared her concern for this topic with a variety of groups over the past seven years. She served on the Lake County Human Trafficking Task Force. With her retirement from the National Guard, she plans to work on this social ill full time. Horton has been involved as a board member in the St. Louis Historical Society, Minnesota Excellence in Public Service, and Junior League of Duluth. She was active in the Duluth Republican Women’s Club and involved with numerous BPOU responsibilities and campaigns and was a House candidate in her local area.
Appointed by Governor’s Pawlenty and Dayton, she served on the Minnesota Humanities Board of Governors. In that position, she is credited for developing the Veteran’s Voices program, a program that gives an outlet for Veterans to talk about their experiences. Horton is a full time Non-Commissioned Officer for the Minnesota Army National Guard. She is married and has five children.
