Organizer/AuthorJeanette Kalchik
Human trafficking, according to the Trafficking Victims Protection Act, is sex trafficking in which a commercial sex act is induced by force, fraud, or coercion, or in which the person induced to perform such an act has not attained 18 years of age; or the recruitment, harboring transportation, provision, or obtaining of a person for labor or services, through the use of force, fraud, or coercion for the purpose of subjection to involuntary servitude, peonage, debt bondage, or slavery.

UC Berkeley's Not For Sale chapter is sponsoring a panel which focuses on the core mission of Not For Sale's campaign: to investigate and eradicate human trafficking. Modern slavery is a widely known issue globally, but little is done to prevent it legislatively. Panelists will discuss modern slavery in the United States, an issue which has not been heavily publicized in mainstream media.

Featured Panelists:

Nikki Jo Junker – Executive Director and co-founder of With More Than Purpose

Dr. Kate Transchel – Professor, History Department, Chico State University

Minh Dang – Doctoral student, School of Social Welfare, UC Berkeley

Lieutenant John Vanek – San Jose Police Department Human Trafficking Task Force
