She's With Me

A Feminist Survival Guide to Seattle

Human Trafficking in Washington: From the Historic Mercer Maids to Sexual Exploitation in Internet Ads

If you have time next Thursday morning, try to check out this important presentation about trafficking in our region!

Hosted by Humanities Washington, this conversation, led by State Senator Jean Kohl-Welles, offers historical, cultural, socioeconomic and public policy perspectives on human trafficking. We will explore complex questions related to the ethics and public policy around this issue, past and present. Attendees will face misbeliefs about human trafficking, confronting the facts that human trafficking does take place in Washington and that the U.S. is not just a destination country but also a source and transit country for trafficking. Finally, we will examine what is being done to intervene and prevent human trafficking, including new laws, innovative law enforcement approaches and actions being taken by human rights groups.

When: 10am, Thursday, October 4th

Where: Albertson Center, 11 West Aloha St, Seattle

About sheswithmeseattle

She's With Me is the brain child of three feminists who got tired of emailing each other every time they caught wind of a womanist event, so they created a separate space to house their feminist calendar. The benefits would be twofold: fewer emails cluttering up their inboxes, and more people learning about Seattle's growing feminist community. She's With Me aims to be a feminist hub, where all the goings on of different organizations are collected in one place. Our plans for the site include reviews/write-ups of events, interviews with local feminist activists, news updates, and essays, poetry, and art by feminists. The Fourth Wave of Feminism is here, and She's With Me will be the feminist scrap book documenting our herstory as it unfolds.
