Too Close to Home: Human Trafficking in the United States is an event that has been organized by MHC students and members of the C.A.U.S.E board to help spread awareness about this complex human right issue facing not only different parts of the globe, but also within our own communities in the United States.
The event will feature a panel of distinguished experts who will address the issue of human trafficking in the United States, focusing on why this is a domestic issue that needs urgent attention, and addressing ways in which it can be understood and confronted. Panelists include Tina Frundt, sex-trafficking survivor, activist, CNN hero and founder of Courtney’s House in Washington DC; Eric Goodwin, graduate student and former member of Human Trafficking Students, Lt. Heseltine, a Massachusetts state trooper and member of the Anti Human-Trafficking Task Force; Cassie Lee-Miller, who works as a Human Trafficking Case Management Coordinator for Lutheran Social Services in Worcester; and Prof. Carrie Baker from Smith College.
The event will be held on Thursday, February 21 from 7:30-9:30 in Hooker Auditorium. The panel discussion is free, open to the public, and wheelchair accessible. For more information, please contact Lauren at firstname.lastname@example.org
