This month's First Thursday Discussion will focus on gender differences within human trafficking and will be facilitated by Taylor Reis, '15.
The issue of human trafficking is of major concern to human rights activists all over the world and even here in the United States. Of illegal activities worldwide, the profits reaped from trafficking humans are second only to those of the drug trade; it is a problem of massive proportions. But does this problem affect males and females in the same way? How does gender play into human trafficking? Come to West Commons (between West and Virgina residence halls) Thursday, March 1st and join other interested and concerned students in a session intended to both inform and stimulate action. This session will be facilitated by Taylor Reis, ’15.
