The International House Global Voices Program, Global Strategist Association (GSA), and UChicago Association of Black Alumni present a panel discussion on human trafficking.
Through a panel of policy experts, actual personal accounts of trafficking, and expert analysis, this event will provide historical and geopolitical context to the slave trade in Libya, as well as draw a connection between what happens abroad and what happens right here in Chicago. The learning from this event will help inform action and policy to combat modern slavery and a better understanding of the global migration crisis.
The panel discussion will include: Dr. Lynette Jackson, University of Illinois at Chicago, Associate Professor of African American Studies and Gender & Women's Studies; Ted Williams, City Colleges of Chicago, Chair of Social Sciences Department; Brenda Myers-Powell, The Dreamcatcher Foundation, Co-Founder/Executive Director; and Mike Simmons, Founder and CEO of Blue Sky Strategies & Company. The panel will be moderated by Dr. Amara Enyia, Global Strategist Association Fellow.
This event is free and open to the public.
This event is co-sponsored by the International House Global Voices Program, Global Strategist Association, and UChicago Association of Black Alumni.
