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…

A collaborative event proudly presented by Nationalities Service Center and The University of Pennsylvania’s School of Social Policy & Practice student organizations: Social Work Advocates for Immigrant Rights (SWAIR), Hispanic/Latino Alliance for Change & Equity (HACE), and Students for International Social Work (SISW).

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.
