    Comprehensive treatment of facets of human trafficking that are often given short shrift: labor trafficking, domestic servitude, child soldiers, begging rackets and more. Compelling presentation of the global scope of these abuses.
    Great panel with Rachel Lloyd hitting the nail on the head about the connection between the vast array of social justice issues with human trafficking: poverty, sexism, classism, racism, etc.
    Great presentation and inspiring to see such a good turnout including many men.
