SWERV guest speaker talks about the global trafficking industry

All women are invited to join Savvy Women Exchanging Relevant Views to hear recently retired University of Puget Sound sociology professor Elizabeth Petras discuss "The Global Trafficking Industry."

This multi-billion dollar industry is second only to the illegal drug trade and tied with illegal arms trading in its profitability. Learn why such a large industry is seemingly invisible and why it is so difficult to intervene.

SWERV meets from 10:30 to noon Tuesday, Jan. 14 at Filipino American Hall, 7566 High School Road.
