In Brian's words, "Many people think slavery went away: it didn't. It has gotten much worse. At slavefreetrade (https://slavefreetrade.org/), we are sick of seeing people die for the things we buy.” Or another new speaker, Jim Carson, actor & stage manager with Zurich Comedy Club. He’s made the Camino de Santiago (http://santiago-compostela.net/) pilgrimage 3 times, most recently in 2017.
