Global Migration and Human Trafficking

On May 15 the Canadian Red Cross features the next event in its 4th annual series “A Story to Tell and a Place for the Telling.” While REED has significant disagreements with some of the solutions posed by presenter Annalee Lepp (such as the total decriminalization of prostitution), the below event will be interesting for those wanting to learn more about the interplay between human trafficking and global migration.


The Canadian Red Cross, in partnership with Vancouver Public Library and local grassroots NGO’s, are proud to present the last in the 2006/07 series:

“Women, Labour and Global Migration” with speaker Dr. Annalee Lepp, University of Victoria.
This presentation looks at globalization as one of the major factors driving transnational labour migration and trafficking in women. It will also considers the impact of cross-border movement on people’s lives in Canada and elsewhere. The short film, ‘Uprooted: Refugees of the Global Economy’ (by the National Network for Immigrant and Refugee Rights, 2001) will be screened that tells the stories of people uprooted by globalization in three diverse countries.

Tuesday May 15th, 7:30 p.m.
Alice McKay Room, Vancouver Public Library Central Branch
350 West Georgia Street, Vancouver
Free event – all welcome
