Event Time and Date

Monday, February 20 2017, 7:30 PM to 9:00 PM

The International Labour Organization estimates that there are 21,000,000 victims of human trafficking and that they collectively generate $150 billion in annual profits for those who exploit them. Significantly, nearly all of us at UAlbany and beyond ultimately benefit from this horrifying crime. We may not take advantage of people who are trafficked for sex, but the chocolate we typically buy is made with cocoa grown by slaves in West Africa. Much of the shrimp that we enjoy was caught and processed by people who are forced to work on ships in Thailand. Laborers in Bangladesh struggle under conditions of involuntary servitude to make much of our clothing. Trafficking is even being done to support sexual and commercial enterprises throughout New York. A group is now forming at UAlbany to raise awareness, promote Fair Trade, and assist trafficked victims. Join us to help or just learn more! You are also welcome to join our new Facebook group at https://www.facebook.com/groups/1236230436458088/. For more information, contact Dennis McCarty at dmccarty@albany.edu.
