Frog in a Well
September 22 | 9:00 - 10:00 AM | Room 2582
Firsthand account of what it's like to be a victim of labor trafficking in the U.S. along with the challenges to survival, getting help and becoming a "survivor". This presentation helps the audience to understand the gaps in identification and getting connected with the people who can help. Audience members will also be exposed to the continual cultural barriers which prevent victims from seeking help or be able to reach out, as well as the many ways in which culture can be used to exploit an entire family. This presentation will highlight the assumption of becoming a survivor, but what that true experience can be like from the insiders’ perspective. Becoming a survivor can be a life long journey, learning to live with the past and not simply try to move beyond presents a new challenge almost every day.
