There are currently 27 million people who are trafficked in the world. Men, women and children are victimized and exploited for labor and the commercial sex industry. Human trafficking is not a problem limited to other parts of the world. It happens in the United States. It happens here in New York City.

The week of events raises awareness of all aspects of human trafficking in all its forms including international, domestic, local, sex, child and labor. The goal is to expose this issue to the Wagner and NYU community, discuss implications of past and current policy decisions, and identify ways to fight modern day slavery. The series will also provide opportunities to interface with several local, domestic, and international organizations that are dedicated to ending human trafficking.
