Local and Global Discussion Group: Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking

Thursday, March 11, 2021

From salted nuts to the shirts we put on our backs, most of us are consumers of goods bearing the taint of modern human slavery. Then there is the murky, hyperviolent world of organ trafficking, which thrives not only in less advantaged parts of the world such as Africa, Eastern Europe, South Asia and Mexico, but within our own borders as well. This month we’ll talk about “modern” human slavery with its sophisticated worldwide networks of procurement and trafficking operations and how it differs from traditional systems. The meeting is open to anyone who is interested in a civil discussion of the issues with wide participation from a variety of individuals. For further information on this meeting in particular or the group in general, contact Susan Wagner at 508-733-8810 or email her at susanwgnr@gmail.com. Contact the COA to register, 781 786 6282.
