Most of what we know about human trafficking comes from the media. We develop our own opinions of how trafficking takes place, who the victims are and what the bad guys look like from heart wrenching headlines and blockbuster movies. But how much can we trust the media to tell true stories?  And how do these stories influence personal attitudes and policy decisions?Register Here

This public event features an award winning investigative reporter Peter Greenberg and a human trafficking policy expert Michele Clark together in a discussion about the messaging on human trafficking and why it matters.

This event is part of a larger program, The 2016 Summit on Women, Gender and Well-being. This includes two days of presentations by faculty, staff and students from the University of Wisconsin and several of the state’s private colleges. This is one of three  lectures and two plenary sessions that are open free to the public.
