SLAVERY IN THE MODERN WORLD: EXPLORING NEW APPROACHES TO COMBAT HUMAN TRAFFICING: This day-long conference will challenge students to become activists against human trafficking. The conference seeks to answer the question: "What can students and academics add to the anti-trafficking movement?" Through facilitated discussions with academics and activists working in the field, students will be challenged to examine the underlying causes of human trafficking and will be given the tools to become active against this international and domestic human rights issue.

In addition to covering major theoretical applications to the issue of trafficking, we hope that through the speakers and conference dialogue the public will acquire some rudimentary tools for identifying trafficking victims in the Washington, DC region and responding appropriately. The conference will take place at WCL in room 602 on April 16, 2004 from 9:30 AM – 4:00 PM. Please contact megan.pierce@bpsos.org for a registration form. Registration forms should be completed by April 2.
