Human trafficking is a gross injustice that affects approximately 27 million young women and children in the world. At any given time, there are 2.4 million victims.
The odds of rescue... one chance in one hundred.
Throughout the Spring Semester, the Center for Multiculturalism and Civic Engagement, The Center for Catholic Studies, The Unanue Latino Institute and the Whitehead School of Diplomacy will be hosting events to increase awareness about human trafficking and the many ways it affects our community.
Tuesday, January 22 at 5:45 p.m.
Chancellor’s Suite, University Center
We will be showing Part I of the Lifetime film “Human Trafficking” followed by a discussion led by Dr. Fredline M’Cormack-Hale, assistant professor at the Whitehead School of Diplomacy.
Passionate about women's issues, Dr. M'Cormack-Hale's teaching and research interests include political development, gender, democratization and the international aid community.
About the Film - Human Trafficking:
"Every day, women and children are enslaved - kidnapped or sold into sex-trafficking rings. This is a tough, uncompromising drama about the brutal realities faced by some of them, and the rookie immigration agent who, with the help of her boss and his team, works to bust the ring she uncovers and get its victims to safety. This emotional tale of survival and justice is a must-see, as it exposes the horror stories that could happen in any neighborhood - including yours."
Part II of "Human Trafficking" will be shown on Tuesday, January 29 in the Faculty Lounge, University Center, also at 5:45 p.m. SAVE (Sexual Assault & Violence Education) helpline team will be hosting the January 29 viewing.
We hope you join us on both dates to gain a deeper understanding of human trafficking, and to share your thoughts on this important social justice issue.
