The YWCA Greenwich is co-sponsoring a powerful panel discussion with over 30 community partners to mark the birthday of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
The event is on Wednesday, Jan 16 at 6:30pm at the YWCA Greenwich.
The panel will examine the issue of labor trafficking in our own community and beyond, and they will discuss the ways we can all help to end modern slavery.
This is an annual event that honors Dr. King’s legacy.
The discussion about human trafficking began in 2018 with a focus on labor trafficking. Globally, the International Labor Organization estimates that there are 20.1 million people trapped in forced labor in industries including agriculture, construction, domestic work and manufacturing.
The YWCA’s goal is to raise awareness of this issue and to provide consumers and business leaders with information on how their own actions can help to put an end labor trafficking. Space is limited, and registration is required. Go to: www.ywcagreenwich.org/labor-trafficking-registration
