December Meetup: Fighting Slavery in Nepal

***We'll be meeting in the 8th floor conference room.***

At this meetup, we'll hear from husband-and-wife team Jenna and Jon Hudlow.

Jenna became involved with modern-day abolitionism five years ago when she was exposed to the atrocity of one of the largest red light districts in Calcutta, India.

Representing Tiny Hands International -- an organization that actively works to intercept girls being trafficked across the Nepal/India border -- she helped spread awareness about this abuse to college students such as at the Air Force Academy, Gonzaga U., Point Loma U., Azusa Pacific, Georgetown, and American U.

Jon first heard about trafficking when he was travelling through Thailand in 2005. He now serves as the director of research and analysis with Tiny Hands, coordinating investigators and analyzing efforts to stop trafficking.

Jon and Jenna recently conducted border monitoring work in Nepal and will share what they experienced.

Be sure to check out this brief Tiny Hands video about trafficking in Nepal:

    I am sorry for backing out at the last minute. It turns out that I have a long night at the office in front of me.

    I am so sorry. This confirmation came too late for me to make it this evening. I want to THANK EVERYONE however, who is taking an interest in this. Modern day slavery is such an offensive crime yet I know it is tolerated at many levels. How can we call ourselves a civilization and not speak out against human trafficking?

    Anuradha Koirala is the founder of Maiti Nepal. The foundation has rescued 12,000 Nepali girls and young women from sex trafficking, many who were sold across the border to brothels in India.
    A typical story from CNN (Ruffins) is below.
    Geeta was 9 when she began wearing makeup, staying up until 2 a.m. and having sex with as many as 60 men a day.
    "I used to be really sad and frustrated with what was happening in my life," she said.
    The daughter of Nepalese peasant farmers, Geeta -- now 26 -- had been sold to a brothel in India by a member of her extended family. The family member had duped Geeta's visually impaired mother into believing her daughter would get work at a clothing company in Nepal.
