Thurs, March 16th, 8:30 AM: Human Rights and Trafficking in Persons: Empowering Women to Address Poverty

The UN Commission on the Status of Women begins meeting this Monday, and you can follow along at #CSW61.

This Thurs, March 16th, at 8:30 AM, NY Anti-Trafficking Network is holding a CSW61 parallel event focused on economic empowerment, human rights, and ways to end trafficking.

Details and Registration Link:

Trafficking in persons is a severe human rights violation, experienced by people of all gender identities and ages in vulnerable situations around the world. This session explores the link between human trafficking, exploitative work conditions, and economic empowerment, with a special focus on trafficked people in the United States. Panelists will address how lack of economic opportunity, migration law and policy, and law enforcement can create the conditions which foster trafficking, and how autonomy, self-determination and economic justice are the keys to a human rights approach for anti-trafficking work.
