Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking
Almost every nation has enacted laws criminalizing human trafficking, and international organizations, governments, and NGOs sponsor a large variety of projects to curb trafficking and slavery. Billions of dollars have been allocated to these efforts. What is the international community doing to combat slavery and trafficking? What are the experiences like for those being trafficked?
Come join the group! We will be viewing the DVD from the FPA.ORG. We will watch the presentation online, followed by a discussion period.
Sponsored by Mammen Family Public Library. For more information on our topics, visit our Library's LibGuide.
Books are available for purchase at the Drive-Thru for $20ea. Payment in cash or checks made out to BARLD.
