Human Trafficking Series: Hidden in Plain Sight: The Faces of Labor Trafficking in Connecticut

Friday, September 24, 2021
12:00 pm2:00 pm

To explore what forms labor trafficking takes in Connecticut and the region, we have invited four legal advocates, each with a unique perspective on labor trafficking and the people trapped by it. Drawing on their work with victims and their expertise bringing legal cases on behalf of these individuals, our panelists will shed light on what labor trafficking looks like in Connecticut and surrounding states—from the migrant farmworkers who pick our crops, to the domestic workers who maintain our households, from the unaccompanied children crossing the border, to the immigrant spouses trapped in abusive marriages, and the workers who have helped build our nation. Panelists will also discuss how our labor and immigration laws impact labor trafficking, and the fine line between labor exploitation and labor trafficking.
