Martina Vandenberg, “Human Trafficking: Ending the Myths, Confronting the Realities”

3/3/2014; 85 minutes

The International Labour Organization estimates that 20.9 million people around the world are currently held in forced labor and servitude. Human trafficking is constantly in the headlines in the United States, but it can be hard to separate fact form fiction. Martina Vandenberg debunks the myths and examine concrete case studies compiled in her two decades combating trafficking in the US and abroad. Martina Vandenberg, founder and president of The Human Trafficking Pro Bono Legal Center in Washington, DC, and former researcher for Human Rights Watch, has spent nearly two decades fighting human trafficking, forced labor, rape as a war crime, and violence against women.
