The University of Montana is bringing in leading experts, government officials and civic leaders from around the world April 15-17 to discuss the prevalence and challenges of human trafficking during the 2014 Mansfield Conference in Missoula.
The topic is one that I became interested in last fall and just this week I attended a special presentation by expert and author Siddarth Kara, who spoke before a large crowd on the subject at Gonzaga University. I interviewed Kara for a story previewing his visit.
The conference, “Fight for Hope and Freedom: Human Trafficking, Montana & the World," will address how people can get involved in the fight against this international crisis.
Sessions and workshops are free and open to the public, but space is limited. Visit http://www.mansfieldconference.org for more information and to register.
