6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

What can public and private sector organizations do to stop human trafficking?

In partnership with New York University School of Law, the British Council is hosting a discussion on the roles that the public and private sectors play in advancing efforts to end trafficking. A panellist from the American Bar Association will explain how US state and federal laws have evolved to deal with labor and sex trafficking, and a representative from Restore NYC will discuss issues related to victims’ rights, safety and trafficking survivors’ re-entry into society.

By debating new ideas such as measuring the “slavery footprint” of an individual, company or society, we will also look at ways to raise awareness of anti-trafficking measures.

This discussion is part of our public program of events to complement the US theatrical debut of Roadkill.
