Hidden in Plain Sight: Victims of Human Trafficking and Modern-day Slavery
Wednesday, July 11th, 1:00pm ET
Live Webcast: http://live.newmediamill.com/webcasts/ATEST/20120710/
Polaris Project's Mary Ellison,
Director of Policy, joins experts from the Alliance to End Slavery and
Trafficking (ATEST) and a survivor of human trafficking in this
interactive webcast to discuss the challenges faced by victims of human
trafficking here in the United States and how these challenges can be
overcome. This webcast is the first in a series of webcasts on the
realities of modern-day slavery.
As a participant, you will have the opportunity to chat live with the panelists throughout the event. Carolina de los Rios, Polaris Project's Director of Client Services will also be available online during the event to answer any questions.
You don't have to register in order to attend!
In addition, check out ATEST'S Facebook page prior to the event to join the discussion.
For now, I'd like your feedback on how you believe this crime so easily takes place when most of us are on the alert for pedophiles, illegal immigration, risk of rape, muggings, gangland activites, and abductions; how you'd define "human trafficking"; how you would recognize it and its victims; under what circumstances is it most likely to happen; how you can stop it.
Thanks for your time and intelligent comments regarding this issue and these questions!
