Lecture and speaker information
The term “human trafficking” often conjures images of brothels in South East Asia or forced labour in sweatshops throughout the developing world, but unbeknownst to many in our own communities, it is happening in Canada as well. The Action Coalition on Human Trafficking will present what human trafficking in Canada looks like and what we as a community can do about it.
