Reminder: Human Trafficking Conference on Weds.

Just a reminder, that on Wednesday, Catholic University is hosting a day long conference on human trafficking. The event will include a panel of survivors of torture and trafficking as well as a panel of advocates. A keynote address by Ambassador Luis CdeBaca, who leads the State Department efforts to combat trafficking and a closing address by Cardinal Theodore McCarrick round out the program.
The event is free and includes continetal breakfast and lunch, but organizers ask everyone to register so there is enough food and chairs for all.
You can register here.
The conference is sponsored by CUA's Institute for Policy Research & Catholic Studies, The Franciscan Action Network and Franciscans International.
