Modern Slavery: What is to be done?

Often unseen or overlooked, modern slavery whether through human trafficking, debt bondage traps, or forced labor is pervasive. What can we do to increase our ability to recognize when slavery is taking place, and what can development programs or business initiatives do to address it? How can we best contribute to eliminating it and what cultural shifts are needed to prevent it? Our speakers will share stories of success and failure from their roles in government, NGOs, and the private sector. 

This session is the first event in our Series on the Prevention of Modern Slavery:

Modern Slavery is a pervasive and urgent global problem, impacting individuals, mostly from vulnerable populations, communities, businesses and governments. From human trafficking and child marriage to bonded and forced labor, slavery continues to thrive in different forms across the globe. This series will examine the complex issue to better understand sectors with high prevalence rates, the roles of various stakeholders and try to contribute to developing actionable solutions.

This event will take place at Chemonics, 1717 H St NW # 1, Washington, DC 20006
