Stolen Dollars and Sense: Breaking the Silence of Labor Trafficking

Friday, March 25, 9 AM

…an educational conference to inform, engage, and motivate the community to collectively plan concrete actions to take in the fight against human trafficking in Philadelphia and beyond…

FREE AND OPEN TO ALL!

PRE-REGISTER TODAY and join us on Friday March 25, 2016 from 9am to 4pm at the University of Pennsylvania, for this thought-provoking conference where YOU can learn how to not only help ‘break the (supply) chains’ of labor trafficking, but also to help break the silence of this all-too-often under discussed dimension of human trafficking.

Engaging and eye-opening discussions will be offered from our diverse panel of experts from across the country, including:

  • Colleen Owens, Urban Institute
  • Daniel Velez, U.S. Attorney
  • Hugh Sandler­, Nussbaum Law Group, P.C.
  • Kristi Lee Graunke, Southern Poverty Law Center
  • Harold D’ Souza, Labor Trafficking Survivor
  • Vanessa Chauhan, Polaris (NHTRC)
  • Kate Brown, Friends of Farmworkers
  • Stephanie Blakeman, Nationalities Service Center
  • Daniela Castejon, The Salvation Army
  • Rhonda Hendrickson, YWCA Greater Harrisburg

Additionally, conference attendees will have the opportunity to engage in action-oriented dialogue with members of the Coalition of Immokalee Workers, whose impactful grassroots movement is featured in the award-winning documentary, Food Chains.
