LAS-ELC to Co-Host Trafficking Workshop on January 31st

LAS-ELC to Co-Host Trafficking Workshop on January 31st
January 17, 2013

January is Trafficking Awareness Month, a good time to think about how to identify victims of this terrible human rights violation and how best to advocate for them.  According to the International Labor Organization, over three-quarters of the people trafficked across the globe are estimated to be involved in forced labor.  They are extracting, harvesting, or producing different goods in countries worldwide.  Even here in the U.S., these individuals toil in the shadows without freedom or access to justice.

We invite you to join us for a brown bag discussion and workshop on this important topic, co-hosted by the Asian Anti-Trafficking Collaborative.  MCLE credit is available. 

Topics to be covered include:

  • Overview of labor trafficking
  • Legal remedies available for trafficking survivors
  • How to identify labor trafficking cases
  • How to identify legal resources for survivors

What:  Workshop: How to Identify Labor Trafficking and Survivor Resources

When:  Thursday, January 31st from 11:30 am – 1:00 pm

Where:  Legal Aid Society-Employment Law Center: 180 Montgomery St., Ste 600, San Francisco, CA 94104  map

We hope that advocates will bring questions, comments, and stories to share at this interactive event.
