The Global Fight Against Human Trafficking, From Bangkok to St. Louis
3:30 - 4:30 p.m.
Busch Student Center, Room 352
Amnesty International at Saint Louis University is proud to host Onésimo Sandoval and Rebecca Feldmann in a presentation concerning a critical human rights issue: human trafficking. The presentation will provide insight into the underground world of sex and labor trafficking around the world, with an emphasis on raising awareness of prevalence of human trafficking in the Midwestern United States. These kinds of human rights violations are often overlooked as a real problem in the U.S. In fact, the U.S. Midwest has been noted to be a hub of human trafficking by numerous research centers. Onésimo Sandoval is an Assistant Professor of Sociology and Anthropology at SLU, and Rebecca Feldmann is a staff attorney on the Immigration Law Project at the Legal Services of Eastern Missouri. Come join us in discussing this critical human rights issue and become inspired to take action in your community.
