This week Lauren Gutman joined us on air to discuss human trafficking (which includes labour trafficking, sex trafficking, and much more) in order to complicate what is traditionally a narrow narrative on what trafficking looks like. We heard from Lauren on: What is human trafficking? Who does it effect most? What can we do to address these issues in our local communities? What is the difference between sex work and sex trafficking? How can we shift the narrative from victim blaming to structural implications? Although we know we don’t have the full answers to these massive questions, we enjoyed getting into the conversation with all of you. This podcast is a preface for more to come – including this coming Friday the Melissa Institute is putting on a conference in partnership with the School of Education and Human Development on Human Trafficking.
