UCF Global Perspectives


Event puts spotlight on trafficking

Erin Reedy, Francis Bok Human Trafficking Awareness Fellow

March 26, 2019

To honor Human Trafficking Awareness Week, UCF’s student group Knights for Social Justice hosted a panel discussion today. The event brought together an array of community leaders who presented diverse ideas on the issue of human trafficking in Central Florida and around the world. Notably, they highlighted the threat of trafficking faced by young people and women in particular, a vital message to the over-100 high school students in attendance. The largest impediment presenters identified in the fight against modern slavery is the lack of awareness among the general population, underscoring the vital importance of these events in furthering the cause, especially among younger generations. UCF’s Center for the Study of Human Trafficking and Modern Slavery proudly co-sponsored this event. More information about this week’s events can be found here.
