Update: Thank you to those who attended our successful CSW57 Event! See you next year!
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.
