GIP Event: Understanding Human Trafficking in Our Community and Around the World

Panel Discussion: Alexandra Badie, Marketing & Communications Manager of International Sanctuary; Brandon Cox, Executive Director of Oasis Refuge; Sgt. Jeffrey Walker, Trafficking Team of the Los Angeles Regional Human Trafficking Taskforce Special Victims Bureau.

The state of California has the highest number of reported human trafficking cases annually in the United States. Los Angeles County is home to many human trafficking prevention and rehabilitation centers. And yet, many of us are completely unaware of the human trafficking that is occurring in our own community and worldwide. A Poly Global Scholar will moderate a discussion amongst a panel of esteemed professionals who will provide an overview of human trafficking in the present day, address the different ways each organization fights against human trafficking, and explore how each of us can join the fight and create ripple effects that cascade from our community out into the world.
