Event Details

During this event some prompts for tools to help fight slavery will be presented.  Then we will go to work.  

Prompt 1)

Labor trafficking vertical - a policy analysis, an industry analysis:
 
This would an analysis of the businesses and areas that labor trafficking is most prevalent.  Here we would be looking at both case studies of past businesses that have been found guilty and looking for common themes.  Additionally we'd see if there are any explanatory geographic features which encourage slavery, like wide open spaces versus the city.  Finally, we'd look at policy questions like, what laws work best to keep rates down?
 
Prompt 2)
 
Reporting - a mobile app:
 
This tool would allow people to quickly report an incidence of human trafficking.  They could optionally upload a picture and an extended description of the type of trafficking they witnessed.  A short message, the location of the text, and the date of incidence would be required.
