When we hear the phrase, "human trafficking", we usually envision brothels in India or red light districts in Nepal. Yet, trafficking is a worldwide phenomenon that is occurring right in our backyard, from the massage parlors of San Francisco to the small night clubs of Gilroy. Throughout our course and trip, we will shed light on the impact of trafficking in our daily lives, and why this billion dollar industry is occurring right here in the Bay Area. We will examine trafficking as an intersection of issues, and how topics such as gender, politics, immigration, and, even, economics fuel this dangerous industry. Through arming ourselves with awareness, we, as students, can equip ourselves with knowledge to identify and fight trafficking in our own community.
