From the Human Trafficking Epidemic to Empowering the Female Gender

By: Alyson Wyers - Apr 3, 2015
These lectures on slavery all address the trade of humans, whether for sexual slavery, forced labor or some other form of commercial exploitation. Some speakers discuss human trafficking as a human rights violation, where as others explain how modern day and historical slavery affects their own line of work.

In her moving presentation on human trafficking, Jennifer O'Farrell emphasizes the need to examine slavery complexly, especially when trying to differentiate between victims and criminals. In another of the lectures on slavery, Chris Rabb talks about democratizing entrepreneurship. His equality speech shares how American commerce is rooted in black slavery. Eve Blossom's sustainable collaboration keynote focuses on creating creative cultures. She came up with the idea for her business when she learned how many female artisans in Southeast Asia are forced into the sex trade.
