Monterey Focus

A Glance into the MIIS Community…

Human Trafficking Awareness Week

Human trafficking. While it’s not the lightest subject in the world, it’s an incredibly relevant international issue. And it deserves the focus of this week’s “Spotlight on MIIS,” especially to highlight the efforts of the Monterey Institute’s STOP and Migration Club to give this subject the weight it truly deserves in the realm of international policy.

Human Trafficking Awareness Week

Human Trafficking Awareness Week commenced last Thursday with the on-campus screening of the film Trade and continued through the weekend with Bill Hillar’s Human Trafficking Workshop. Today a letter writing campaign – to persuade US representatives to extend TVPA legislation, which provides means to address human trafficking through advocacy and education – was held in the Samson Center Courtyard.

But that’s not all…Tuesday September 30th at 7:00PM STOP and Migration Club’s efforts culminate with a speaker panel of human trafficking experts in Irvine Auditorium. Read about the event details here, and don’t forget to show up if you’re in the area. Thanks for your time, and check back next week and the week after for more MIIS community news and events!
