Black Mountain Institute; UNLV College of Urban Affairs
Fr. Uwem Akpan, Black Mountain Visiting Fellow, and Alexis Kennedy, UNLV professor, discuss the scourge of human trafficking. Modern day slavery generates billions of dollars and is one of the world's fastest growing enterprises. Despite the fact that slavery is illegal around the world, there are actually more people enslaved today (many of them forced into sex work) than at any other time in history. Akpan and Kennedy talk about how people end up being trafficked, the true cost of this hidden economy, and how to stop it.
