The Advocates for Human Rights' Madeline Lohman will lead a discussion on human trafficking, a local and worldwide problem. Human trafficking creates billions of dollars in international trade annually and continues to be one of the fastest growing criminal industries. While undeniably a global phenomenon, the United States, as one of the world's leading human trafficking importers, bears a special responsibility to combat this practice. Various treaties and laws have been enacted to prevent trafficking, but what more can be done to end this abuse? How has Minnesota helped lead the nation to stronger, more victim-centered anti-trafficking legislation?
