We often think of human trafficking as something that affects a relatively few people in remote countries. However, it's estimated that as many as 27 million people around the world are victims of human trafficking
. And between 14,500 and 17,500 victims of those victims are here in the U.S
To raise awareness, the Project to End Human Trafficking (PEHT) hosts a free panel discussion, “Human Trafficking at Home & Abroad,” tomorrow night, at Point Park University’s JVH Auditorium.
Speakers include PEHT team members Mary Burke and Lynsie Clott, FBI Supervisory Special Agent Brad Orsini, photographer Maranie Staab, and the panel will be moderated by Chris Rolinson, associate professor of photography at Point Park.
The event highlights PEHT’s “Women and Children of Uganda
” gallery exhibit, featuring Staab’s photographs of the organization’s work in Uganda. Staab’s photos will be on display in Point Park's Lawrence Hall through the end of December.
The Wed., Nov. 11, event takes place 6-9 p.m. at 201 Wood St., Downtown. Click here for more info
