School of Law (Room 283)
A screening of the film “Flesh: Bought and Sold In The U.S.," a documentary about human trafficking followed by a panel discussion consisting of members from Providence Police Department, Day One, and Family Services of Rhode Island. The program will take place on Wednesday, April 5 at 7 p.m. in the School of Law (Room 283). This is an excellent opportunity for the campus community to come together and learn more about the events that occur daily and in our own backyards of Rhode Island. The act of trafficking occurs more frequently and closer to home than we may think. By building awareness we will be able to know the signs of trafficking and know how to report these crimes to the appropriate people.
