Sex Trade: Conference

This Wednesday, i'll be in attendance at a conference hosted by the Cedars Foundation, which will take place in downtown los angeles, and will run from 8.15a to 3.30p.

The day will focus on the sex trade and on human trafficking, with an emphasis on prevention. It wouldn't be a stretch to say that trafficking is the human rights crisis of the 21st century, and it's commanded my attention over the past few months, for a multitude of reasons. Thus far, my involvement has been limited to penning an article in the SEMI, Fuller's student newspaper (linked, p 8 of the PDF). So I'm looking forward to being around people who've seen this reality much longer than I have, and have insight on some of the different angles that we need consider; should be a great learning experience.

Registration is free and open to all interested parties, so if anyone's intrigued and able to join in last minutes, shoot me your info or comment and i'll forward materials your way, along with contact info for the persons in charge of the event. No guarantees that i won't try to hitch a ride...i can go metro, but that's always an adventure that i like to avoid if possible.
