Child Trafficking Panel Discussion

July 16, 2014

Our firm will host a panel discussion entitled "Not For Sale" - Combating Child Trafficking and Exploitation on July 31st at 4:00 p.m.  Guests are invited to register for this timely and complimentary panel about a crime that is pervasive locally, in the United States and throughout the world.  

Our panel of guests will define human trafficking, identify risk factors and instruct attendees how to respond and get involved in prevention. Panelists are: Stephanie Goins, Ph.D., Executive Program Director at Love146; David Novick, Assistant U.S. Attorney for the District of Connecticut; and Tammy M. Sneed, Director of Gender Responsive Adolescent Services at Connecticut's Department of Children and Families.

Human trafficking is modern-day slavery where people profit from the control and exploitation of others. It is also a criminal business that generates billions of dollars in global profits annually from enslaving people for sexual servitude and forced labor. It is the fastest growing and second largest criminal industry in the world today (second only to drug trafficking and tied with illegal arms), according to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

The panel discussion is the fifth in the firm's "In Community" series, a series designed to focus on a variety of issues facing our workforce and community. Past topics have included:

  • Working With the Deaf and Hard of Hearing Population: A Case Study Under the ADA;
  • Race and Cultural Identity in the Working Environment;
  • Understanding Gender Identity and Expression and Its Impact in the Workplace; and
  • Understanding Islam
