Modern Day Slavery: Human Trafficking

August 14, 2013 - 1:33 pm

ENCORE BROADCAST – Human trafficking is essentially modern day slavery.  It’s when someone is forced or coerced with violence, deception or threats to provide labor or commercial sex, and when they’re prevented from leaving the situation.  Human trafficking can occur anywhere and it does happen in our region.  It can range from domestic servitude to sex trafficking, and labor to organ harvesting.

Out guests shed light on the global and economic context of human trafficking, types of human trafficking cases and what people in our communities are doing to respond to human trafficking in our region. 

Guests are:

Velma Veloria – Former State Legislator involved in passing the first anti-human trafficking legislation in the nation

Emma Catague – Human Trafficking Victim Advocate  at APIChaya

Megan Bruneau – Vice Squad Investigator of Foreign Nationals in Human Trafficking at the Seattle Police Department
