5th Annual Human Trafficking Symposium

February 1, 2019 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

 

5th ANNUAL SOCIAL JUSTICE STUDENT INITIATIVE HUMAN TRAFFICKING SYMPOSIUM

“Migrants and Trafficking: The Vulnerability of Movement”

Migrants have taken a prominent place on the public stage in recent years, from divided political rhetoric on status of migrants in the United States, to news of migrant caravans traveling to the U.S. from South America, to the changing landscape of immigration law in the country, such as the upheaval of asylum availability or family separation at the border. These individuals are at significant risk for trafficking. Many are lured into migration by promise of employment, safety, or legitimate status in the country of immigration. Others are victims of crime such as kidnapping or sex crimes. The result is often enslavement, violence, torture and even threats of death.
