Nowhere on the posting or the linked invite do they define trafficking. The worldwide exploitation and enslavement of women and others is the dark underside of the worldwide capitalist system which exploits billions of people. These cops, prosecutors and mainstream (read pro-capitalist) social service agencies that are working on this conference will not solve the problems of exploitatation and slavery. If they actually cared about the victims worldwide, they would all work to get rid of exploitation/capitalism anywhere it rears its ugly head. This would include helping people around the world to empower themselves, and helping them to abolish capitalism. I worry that is a showcase for community policing and reinvigorated prosecutions when the police are being discredited (rightfully so!) by everyday brutality exemplified by the Oscar Grant murder. If you go to this event thinking you will help exploited women, watch your wallet and your civil rights.
