Join us on January 10th at the Brooklyn Historical Society for Fighting Modern Day Slavery: A Panel Discussion co-presented by Plymouth Church. This important conversation examines one of today’s greatest tragedies: 21-30 million people are enslaved around the world. Led by Free the Slaves, one of the leading organizations in freeing and supporting enslaved peoples, we will look at how slavery persists, who is caught in up in this devastating web, and what are the best strategies for creating sustainable freedom.
This powerful program uncovers a horrific subject – human trafficking today. Hear from a survivor of sex trafficking and experts Maurice I. Middleberg, Executive Director of the organization Free the Slaves, and Terry Patrick McCarthy, Director of Harvard’s Human Rights and Social Movements Program. Doors open at 6pm for a sneak peek at BHS’ major new exhibit, Brooklyn Abolitionists/In Pursuit of Freedom. Panel discussion will begin at 7pm.
Admission is free! Brooklyn Brewery beer will be available for purchase. Click on the buy tickets link below to reserve your spot.
