WSI: No More Human Trafficking-Stories, Statistics, and Solutions

Wednesday, October 11, 2017

What would it take to end human trafficking?

Regardless of social progress in this modern world, millions of people (often women and children) are enslaved, becoming victims of most horrendous forms of labor and/or sexual exploitation. Where have we gone wrong? What can we do to eradicate human trafficking locally and everywhere in the world? Human trafficking cannot be acceptable to anyone. It must stop. In this WSI Experience we will reflect with academics, practitioners and survivors on the complexities and dimensions of human trafficking while learning about creative solutions to this problem. An outcome of this WSI Experience is to know diverse ways in which we can be more involved and contribute to change this unacceptable order of things. As a member of WSI - you are invited to bring one new guest to each experience. We look forward to seeing you in September!
