What can YOU do? Examining Human Trafficking Part II

Welcome back to Singin’ in the Rain. In part two of this episode with Anne-Michelle Ellis we continue our discussion about human trafficking. Last week, Ms. Ellis detailed the heartbreaking narrative that unfolds as victims enter into the life of human trafficking. This week, we will further examine the definition of human trafficking and the various typologies of exploitation that persist in the world today. Ms. Ellis will discuss what we can do to fight against human trafficking, what is currently being done to combat the global economic forces behind human trafficking, and how to respond more effectively to these crimes.

In this episode we explore:

  • What tactics do traffickers use to keep their victims in the life?
  • What are the vulnerabilities a trafficker would use to get someone to do something they don’t want to do? How and why are these effective?
  • What is the extent of human trafficking?
  • What is being done to address human trafficking? What did the legislation California Proposition 35 actually do in California?
  • How does investing in the life of a child help protect them again traffickers?
  • What are the practical ways to spot human trafficking and report it?

Tune in as we discuss the magnitude and scope of the human trafficking problem as well as its causes. Although human trafficking will not be resolved with a podcast, your earnest support to stem the tide of smuggling and trafficking is greatly appreciated by Claremont Lincoln University.
