Ripon College panel to discuss human trafficking Feb. 7

“The Crisis of Human Trafficking Globally and in Wisconsin” will be held presented Tuesday, Feb. 7, at Ripon College. The program will begin at 4:15 p.m. in Kresge Little Theatre, East Hall, and is sponsored by the Center for Politics and the People. All are welcome to attend.

The trafficking of human beings is a major global industry netting $32 billion annually for those who manage it. Among the victims are children. Forced child labor is common in the red light districts of Pattaya, Thailand, and young boys and girls often can be seen working as street vendors.

Panelists will provide an overview of the millions of victims of human trafficking, how they are lured into the network, and what is being done to counter human trafficking for sexual and/or labor exploitation.

Panelists will include: Evelyn Galster of Freeland, an organization based in Green Lake, Wisconsin, and Thailand, that tracks human enslavement from Asia into the United States; and Sister Celine Goessl of Holy Cross Sisters in Green Bay, who works with Eye Heart World to educate the public and support the victims of human trafficking in the Fox Valley of Wisconsin.
