The Face of Abuse: Exploring the Issue of Human Trafficking at Home and Abroad
Location:   85 2nd Street, 1st Floor Boardroom, San Francisco
Date:    Thursday, March 24, 2011
Time:   Noon - 1 p.m.

Details:   Every day, children and young adults who are exploited and sexually abused are stripped of their basic human rights. Human trafficking has become a growing problem not only internationally, but also here at home. There are 27 million victims of modern-day slavery worldwide – and the problem only continues to grow. In 2006, the Oakland Police Department developed a new strategy to address the ever-increasing problem of domestic human trafficking. Organizations such as the Freedom House, who have a shelter based locally in San Mateo, are also fighting back against the exploitation of children who have come to the United States from other countries and are being mistreated and abused.

Speakers: Kate Kerr, programs director at the Freedom House, has a background in law, business and nonprofit work. She has international and domestic experience working with vulnerable populations including leading a project with women from a village in Guatemala and working with survivors of sex trafficking locally and abroad. Kevin Wiley, a lieutenant with the Oakland Police Department, has worked for a majority of his 23 years with the department in the area of child abuse, sexual assault, prostitution and human trafficking. For the past five years, he has worked as the commander in charge of the East Bay Human Trafficking Task Force.

The event is free but space is limited. Please RSVP to rkatz@berkeley.edu.
