Beyond Hollywood – The reality of human trafficking
Hollywood producers, rap artists and even some good meaning civic groups often portray human trafficking in ways that are not often accurate. Human trafficking, sex, and labor trafficking are very real crimes that target the most vulnerable of our society.
This session will look at a comparative study of some famous cases of trafficking by well known perpetrators as well as the not so famous cases. The reality of trafficking is that literally millions of young people are groomed, recruited, and exploited in horiffic ways and we will use this session to tell their stories.
