***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.
