Combating Trafficking in Persons II
June 15, 2016 - June 18, 2016
Human trafficking has become a pressing issue in recent years, which has captured the attention of the Interagency Federal Law Enforcement Partnership to Combat Human Trafficking. In order to bring restorative justice to a community plagued by trafficking in persons, CCWA is hosting a project that aims to examine U.S. local, national, and international efforts to combat human trafficking and present strategies for preventing, investigating, and prosecuting trafficking crimes.
CCWA will welcome participants from the following countries: Angola, Bangladesh, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Botswana, Brazil, India, Israel, Lebanon, Malawi, Mexico, Moldova, Mongolia, Nepal, New Zealand, Slovakia, Suriname, Timor-Leste, and Trinidad and Tobago for this project. Participants will explore how to help marginalized populations most at risk to victimization; learn about emerging programs rooted in educational, religious, governmental, and business organizations; and discuss awareness and education efforts in combating human trafficking.
International Visitor Leadership (IVLP) Program
Each year, over 250 professionals from around the world visit Northeast Ohio through IVLP. Sponsored by the U.S. Department of State, these visitors have been identified by U.S. embassies as emerging leaders in their fields. Over 50 Nobel Laureates and 335 current or former Chiefs of State or Heads of Government are alumni of this program.
By connecting with foreign leaders we strengthen Northeast Ohio’s commercial, cultural, and educational ties with the rest of the world. For more information, contact Katie Ferman, Program Officer, at firstname.lastname@example.org or click here. To get involved as a Citizen Diplomat, click here.
