Upcoming Events

Hidden Victimization: Labor Trafficking in the United States

Tuesday, Oct. 30 | 12 p.m.
Kostas Research Institute, 141 South Bedford St., Burlington, MA
$6 per person

Labor trafficking is a devastating crime that robs victims of their humanity, and denies workers basic human rights. Identifying victims and holding perpetrators or firms accountable is challenging due to language barriers, citizenship status, and industry-specific practices have complicated the ability for both law enforcement and victims’ service agencies to respond. Join us to explore the nature of labor trafficking in the US; learn about victims’ experiences from their recruitment, movement, exploitation and escape

Speaker: Amy Farrell, PhD’01, Associate Director and Associate Professor of Criminology and Criminal Justice
