On a regular basis, members attend United Methodist Seminars on National and International Affairs in both New York City and Washington, D.C. The seminars explore topics selected by the participants from among a range of social justice issues, such as poverty, immigration, and the environment. The participants for this past weekend's seminar came from churches in New York and Connecticut, and had expressed interest in learning more about human trafficking.
As part of our presentation, we showed the trailer and selected interview excerpts, and provided an overview of the snakehead trade. The presentation was followed by a lively Q&A session that revolved around both questions of how this system of trafficking works, and how individuals could make a difference in the lives of these young persons.
