Forced Labor and Slavery: The Other Side of Trafficking

February 8

9:00 am - 5:00 pm

Forced Labor is the modern day equivalent to Slavery. About 600,000 to 800,000 people are trafficked around the world, and millions are forced into labor in their own countries. This full-day event will focus on Labor Trafficking in the US and abroad. We will explore how Labor Trafficking differs from Sex Trafficking and the challenges faced in this field. Discussion will focus around the causes of this forced labor, common scenarios of slavery, the consequences victims face, and what is being done to combat this slavery. Also, since Labor Trafficking can occur anywhere, even right here in our neighborhood, we will host a practical session on what rights domestic workers, often victims of labor slavery, have and how students can help victims of Labor Trafficking in their own communities
