Antidote Southern Maryland is a two-day conference sponsored by Charles County Department of Social Services. In partnership with the Charles County Chapter of the NAACP, The Family Recovery Court, and Board of Child Care to inform, educate, and equip the residents of Charles, Calvert, and St. Mary's Counties to counter human trafficking and its impact upon our region.
Human trafficking is considered modern-day slavery. Traffickers generate between $39-44 billion annually at the expense of innocent children and young adults who are abducted and sold into the sex trade. The average age of a trafficking victim is 14, and Southern Maryland is a documented thoroughfare for trafficking activity.
