Nebraska's Forsythe Family Program on Human Rights and Humanitarian Affairs will host several events on human trafficking and immigration Oct. 26 and Nov. 3. The discussions are open to all faculty, staff, and students.
The events will seek to raise awareness of human trafficking, amplify the voices of the vulnerable, and equip participants to be part of the solution.
In a forum taking place from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Oct. 26 in the Nebraska Union, founder and CEO of Runaway Girl, Inc. Carissa Phelps will share her experiences advocating for victims’ rights and providing life-changing services for survivors. A documentary on child sex trafficking, "California's Forgotten Children," will also be shown.
A symposium taking place from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Nov. 3 will feature Melissa Farley, research and clinical psychologist at Prostitution Research & Education, and Leah Jonet Albright-Byrd, founder of survivor healing organization Bridget's Dream.
