CSW57 Panel

NYATN will present an NGO Commission on the Status of Women (CSW) Forum Parallel Event, “Promoting Human Rights and Ending Trafficking in Persons,” on March 7, 2013 at 8:30 am in honor of Women’s History Month.

Trafficking in persons continues as a severe violation of human rights around the world. Women and girls, in particular, are vulnerable to human trafficking in a variety of sectors, and they experience coercion, abuse, and a climate of fear in their work. This panel will feature discussion by program and policy experts as they examine the dynamics of vulnerabilities, and the promotion of human rights-based and long-term solutions to trafficking in persons.

Kindly RSVP.
