  5. Local and Global Discussion Group: Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking

    March 11, 2021, 1:15 PM - 3:00 PM @ Zoom

The meeting is open to anyone who is interested in a civil discussion of the issues with wide participation from a variety of individuals.

Edin and Shaefer, respectively professors at Johns Hopkins University and the University of Michigan, trace the history of welfare in the U.S. up to the cuts enacted by President Clinton. They also explore the worlds of the desperately impoverished, profiling people who are able to find, at best, low-wage jobs with no bargaining power.” – Syndetics, a Bowker service.
