We Were Once Slaves, Too.
What is Human Trafficking? What role does our healthcare system play?
What is the Federal Government doing to prevent trafficking?
How do Survivors move on?
Hadassah, the Women's Zionist Organization of America and the J are partnering to bring you a panel discussion on human trafficking. Our panel of experts will speak on a variety of topics related to this modern day slavery.
Human trafficking (sex and labor) is a global problem. The term can be misleading: it places emphasis on the transaction aspects of a crime that is more accurately described as enslavement of humans. Trafficking in persons is a criminal and highly profitable business. Today we are becoming more aware that humans prey upon humans for money. For the perpetrators, the risk of getting caught is outweighed by the financial benefits. Women and children are the most vulnerable segments of our population.
Refreshments and desserts will be served.
Fee: $15/ $10 for Hadassah members and Associates or J members
