The exploitation of human beings, including underage youth, for financial gain is one of the more unseemly realities in modern life.
The Child and Youth Care program at the University of the Fraser Valley will be shedding some light on the issue on Monday, March 28, when it presents a forum on human trafficking. There will be expert speakers, as well as a screening of a DVD filmed in the Vancouver area, concerning the issue.
Speakers include Mikael Bingham, the community coordinator for REED (Resist Exploitation; Embrace Dignity), and Jessica Martin, administrative assistant for EVE (Exploited Voices Now Educating).
The event takes place from 7 to 9 p.m., in Room B101 (lecture theatre) of the Abbotsford campus.
Admission is free and the public is welcome.
