Martina Vandenberg, President and Founder, The Human Trafficking Pro Bono Legal Center, Washington

Mehroz Baig, Butler Koshland Fellow, The Commonwealth Club – Moderator

The International Labour Organization estimates that 20.9 million people around the world are currently held in forced labor and servitude. Human trafficking is constantly in the headlines in the United States, but it can be hard to separate fact from fiction. Vandenberg will debunk the myths and examine concrete case studies compiled in her two decades combating trafficking in the United States and abroad. She received the Truman Foundations 2013 Stevens Award.
