What is human trafficking? How does our judicial system factor into combatting this devastating crime? How is the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service involved? What can we do to raise public awareness about Human Trafficking?
These are just some of the questions to be answered as The Franciscan Institute for Personal and Family Development will host a panel discussion on Human Trafficking this coming Friday, January 31 from 5–7 p.m. at The University of the West Indies (UWI), Chaplaincy, St Augustine.
A release from the Franciscan Institute, a ministry of the Sisters of the Sorrowful Mother (SSM), said that the event will highlight the need for better public awareness about human trafficking and the collaboration between governments, non-profit organisations, and civil society to prevent human trafficking, protect victims and prosecute perpetrators.
