Summer 2019 Human Trafficking Academy
July 15, 2019 - July 19, 2019
This summer’s Academy offers a unique vision to confronting commercial sexual exploitation: analyzing the problem and exploring solutions through the lens of integral human development. Sex trafficking is one of the worst affronts to the dignity of the human person, and human flourishing is the ultimate societal goal. But, how do we confront this societal evil, and can we achieve our goal? Criminalizing the conduct is necessary, but not enough.
This Academy aims at empowering all stakeholders – and above all the survivors of sex trafficking – with a well-rounded understanding of human ecology. Root causes, push and pull factors, trends in decision, rights and obligations, full victim integration and much more will be addressed in comprehensive courses threaded with knowledge of the fundamental circumstances for human growth: economy, finance, labor, family, community life, cultural wealth and artistic creativity, religious belonging and spiritual dimension. Practical exercises will contextualize sex trafficking around sporting events such as the Super Bowl.
Join us in this empowering journey!
