Human Trafficking: Strategies and Solutions
DATE & TIME
April 14, 6:30-8:30pm
The Jane Addams Hull-House Museum
800 S. Halsted, Chicago, IL
Human trafficking, for sex, for other forms of labor, or any purpose of involuntary servitude, is an exploitative practice that is prevalent in countries all around the globe, including the United States.
Activists and scholars fervently debate the definition of trafficking, moral distinctions that are often made between labor and sex work, various understandings of victimhood, and questions about the intent and success rate of “rescue operations.” In addition, there are complexities of migration to consider and debates about the relationship between forced labor and the global economy.
Join us for an evening of discussion and education. Scholars and activists working to end trafficking will discuss their strategies and positions. Hull-House history and Jane Addams’ relationship with the movement to end “white slavery” will be highlighted.
Confirmed panelists represent the following organizations:
Chicago Alliance Against Sexual Exploitation
Chicago Taskforce on Violence Against Girls and Young Women
The International Organization for Adolescents
National Immigrant Justice Center at the Heartland Alliance
Sex Workers Outreach Project Chicago
