Global Social Responsibility Conference Presentation

"The Business of Sex Trafficking: Supply & Demand"

Tuesday, October 22 @ 5 PM North Voyagers Room

Presented by Becca Kotz & Sara Menning

 

GSR Conference Website

 

When there are more slaves now than ever before in human history, it begs the question- Why? The answer lies in simple economics. Demand is fundamental for product survival- and the product is women and girls. The factors that drive the commercial sexual industry are pornography, gender roles, legalization of buying sex, law enforcement corruption and rape culture. The supply is driven by vulnerable victims who fall prey to the deceptive tactics of traffickers. This presentation will confront the factors driving the industry and offer action steps to diminish the influences that allow modern-day slavery to thrive.

Take Back The Night

Sexual Assault/Domestic Violence Awareness 9/26/13

Barden Park

 

At the event there was a Clothesline Project where survivors wrote down their stories and pain. Survivors spoke on the effects of physical and sexual assault on their lives and shared their testimonies. SATS tabled at this event and President Becca Kotz spoke at the event on  SATS,  student involvement and taking action against these injustices.

NEFARIOUS SCREENING

SEX TRAFFICKING AWARENESS EVENT 4/2/13

 

We packed the theater with around 180 people that showed up for the screening! We had a very positive responce to the documentary. According to our evaluations, those who watched seemed very motivated to take action on human trafficking and get involved. We collected many donations for women and girls trafficked here in St. Cloud. These items were donated to victims we are working with through the Central Minnesota Human Trafficking Task Force. 

 

Additional donations can be dropped off at the Women's Center on 5th Avenue on campus. There is a box located there.

 

If you would like to screen Nefarious in your class, conference, church, or community, we will host a screening and presentation for the cheaper cost of the license ($100), otherwise host your own screening and purchase a license for $200 by visiting this website.
