Great Decisions in Foreign Policy

Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking

The League of Women Voters of Whidbey Island sponsors Great Decisions, America's largest discussion program on world affairs. A new topic is presented each week during the series.

Almost every nation has enacted laws criminalizing human trafficking, and international organizations, governments, and NGOs sponsor a large variety of projects to curb trafficking and slavery. Billions of dollars have been allocated to these efforts. What is the international community doing to combat slavery and trafficking? What are the experiences like for those being trafficked?

The program involves reading the Great Decisions Briefing Book, and meeting in a group to view a short film and discuss the most critical global issues facing America today. To order a copy of the book, which includes all eight topics, and for more information, call 212-481-8100 or visit https://www.fpa.org/great_decisions/?act=gd_materials.  For more information, email lwv.whidbey@gmail.com.
