The San Diego World Affairs Council presents:
Dr. Susan Tiefenbrun
Human trafficking and sex trafficking are serious international crimes that also exist in the United States. Sex trafficking involves the harboring and transporting of women and children within and across borders by force, fraud and coercion in order to force them with violence into brothels for the purpose of engaging in forced labor and forced prostitution. These women and children are not paid for their sex work because they are forced to pay back a debt that they never wanted to incur. This is called “debt bondage.” Dr. Susan Tiefenbrun has been researching and writing about sex trafficking for more than ten years. This presentation will discuss in detail the causes, effects, laws governing, and possible solutions of sex trafficking.
