Sex and Labor Slaves: The Scourge of Human Trafficking (CLE)
June 13, 2014
1:30 pm
Sheraton Oceanfront
Capes Ballroom
Virginia Beach, VA

Information & Speakers

In an historic collaboration, the Virginia Women Attorneys Association, the Young Lawyers Conference of the VSB, the Asian Pacific American Bar Association-VA, the Hispanic Bar Association-VA and the Old Dominion Bar Association have joined together to focus the attention of VSB Annual Meeting attendees on the compelling issue of human trafficking. This modern day slavery is reported by the United Nations to be the fastest growing criminal enterprise in the world and one of the most profitable. Although precise statistics are hard to come by for this hidden crime, there are an estimated 20 million men, women and children around the world who have been forced into sex or labor. The Department of Justice has identified Richmond, Virginia as one of the top twenty human trafficking jurisdictions in the United States.

Our expert speakers will provide the basis for an on-going conversation on how the legal community must respond to this threat which is present in all our communities.
