NOV. 8, 5:30-7:30 PM, HUB AUDITORIUM</p>
Each year, roughly four million women and children are trafficked internationally - many of whom are forced into labor and the sex trade. Help break the silence by learning more about this hidden industry.
We will begin with a partial viewing of the acclaimed documentary, "The Day My God Died," which traces the experiences of young South Asian girls trafficked into prostitution. Immidiately following the film, a panel of trafficking experts will discuss the latest research and what is being done to support trafficking victims.
The panelists include Sutapa Basu, Director of the UW Women's Center; Sahar Romani, a Daywalka Foundation Fellow who works on creative writing projects in Calcutta with children from the Red Light District; and Sally Newman of the Trafficking In Persons Department in Washington D.C.
This event is free and open to the public, however there is a suggested donation of $5 that will benefit the work being done by the Daywalka Foundation.
