2013 Social Justice Forum – Slavery and Human Trafficking

The 2013 UNLSA Social Justice Forum is exploring the Criminal Justice System within the realm of the horrendous human rights abuses of ‘Slavery and Human Trafficking’.

What people don’t know is that Slavery and Human Trafficking is the second largest organized crime in the world and every 30 seconds, a person falls victim to it. This clearly conveys that the law simply does not protect these vulnerable individuals and the community at large is simply not aware of its presence. However, some people are and subsequently, have joined forces to combat this issue.

This year’s Social Justice Forum is designed to educate and inform students about this human rights abuse, whilst gaining insight into the professionals who advocate, protect and save these individuals from such circumstances.
