Did you know....There are more slaves in the USA today than in any time in our history! Farmers Branch-Carrollton AAUW will be hosting E. Benjamin Skinner, author of A Crime So Monstrous: Face-to-Face with Modern-Day Slavery.
Mr. Skinner’s definition of “slaves” as “people who are forced to work,
under threat of violence, for no pay beyond subsistence” helped establish the enormity of the problem worldwide. As he traveled the world observing the sale of human beings, his extensive research over five years took him to “trafficking networks and slave quarries, urban child markets, and illegal brothels.” Please join us as we discuss this global issue and come to understand how it currently exists in our local area today.
