According to the United Nations, human trafficking reaches every part of the globe, affecting more than 27 million people. It is an estimated $32 billion-per-year global industry, and California is one of our nation's top four destination states for the trade. Transnational and domestic gangs have expanded from trafficking guns and drugs to trafficking human beings. Over the past four years, the number of cases prosecuted in San Diego has more than tripled.
What can we do as a community? How can we raise awareness? We will provide an overview of the crisis, bringing together a wide range of perspectives and voices. Our diverse panel will lead the discussion on the impact of this trade on our region and what we, as a community, can do to impart change.
