Event description

Description

The Arizona State University Police Department issued a safety bulletin in 2018, warning students that sex traffickers may be attending college parties to recruit or coerce women into prostitution. The department says it was advised by other law enforcement agencies of the trend at other universities. The reports describe human sex traffickers attending college parties and events in an effort to recruit or coerce females. These efforts include photographing or getting students into compromising situations, then using threats of force or exposure to the campus community to persuade victims into prostitution.

Higher education has a critical role in protecting their students from human traffickers on their campuses and preparing their students to take a stand against it. Meet one educator who is doing just that! VCU Assistant Professor Maureen Moslow-Benway will share how she is empowering students to take action in the fight against human trafficking. Ms. Moslow-Benway is a faculty member at the Wilder School of Governemnt at Virginia Commonwealth University.

This 45-minute lecture is part of the 2nd Annual Medical Symposium on Human Trafficking scheduled for February 4 - 8, 2020. For the complete list of class offerings, please visit: ImPACT Virginia.

The Symposium is free and open to the public.
