Human Trafficking, according to the International Labor Organization, is a 150 billion dollar-a-year global industry.  It is one of the worst forms of human rights violations.

Eleanor Roosevelt College is strongly committed to ensuring the human rights of all people. As a college that promotes international understanding and community development, ERC is challenging students to broaden their intellectual mind and socio-cultural curiosities beyond the common privileges of modern society. Eleanor Roosevelt College now offers a Human Trafficking Awareness Workshop that not only offers students a glimpse into the dark side of humanity but also opportunities for social change and justice.

The Human Trafficking Workshop includes two learning modules.

The first workshop is a one-day program from 9 am to 5 pm covering the following topics:

  • The criminal elements that define human trafficking
  • The scope and nature of the problem
  • The legal framework that governs human trafficking
  • The tactics utilized by traffickers to recruit and exploit victims
  • The signs and indicators of abuse and exploitation
  • A community response to human trafficking  

The second workshop is an international field experience from 9 am to 7 pm.
