Human Trafficking Film Screening
Professor Zaoui's Practice I BSW students (Savanna Luberto, Jennifer Cairns, Stephanie Carrilo, Donna Eitenne, Annalise Asencio, Angie Andrews and Leslie Altman) attended a Human Trafficking Film Screening: "Sex + Money A National Search for Human Worth." After the documentary, students had a chance to hear from community providers that serve this population as well as a law enforcement officer that tracks human trafficked victims in our community. "We are definitely living in a new era where human trafficking is much more ubiquitous than we can imagine, and as social workers, we have a responsibility to the victims to identify signs of trafficking and understand how to advocate and get them help. Social workers today are faced with a very real ominous social issue--human trafficking, and as such, we need to broaden our perspective and assessment of our clients" (Zaoui, 2012). The afore-mentioned students eagerly came out to support and learn more about how they can promote social justice, advocacy and work with this population.
