When: June 7, 2016 from 7 to 9 p.m.

Trafficked children are portrayed by the media - and even by child welfare specialists - as hapless victims who are forced to migrate from a poor country to the United States, where they serve as sex slaves. But as Gozdziak reveals in Trafficked Children in the United States, the picture is far more complex. Basing her observations on research with 140 children from countries all over the globe, Gozdziak debunks many myths and uncovers the realities of the captivity, rescue, and rehabilitation of trafficked children.
