Modern prohibitions of human trafficking in the U.S. are rooted in the 13th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, which barred slavery and involuntary servitude in 1865. Credibly connecting historic and modern slavery provides a broader, deeper understanding of slavery across time that will inspire a new generation of conductors. Join us for a meaningful discussion as we explore the current state of human trafficking with the impact of the pandemic and continuous systemic racial inequities.
National Human Trafficking Awareness Day brings attention to a crime that leaves a lasting toll on human life, families, and communities around the world. Beginning in 2010, by Presidential Proclamation, each January has been designated National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month.
