Uncovering Human Trafficking Week is a proud large-scale collaboration between the United Nations Society, Student Action for Refugees, Women in Business, Sociology and Social Justice, Human Rights, and Students for Children, LSE CSR and Ethical Business Society, and Visual Arts Society. They have organised this week with the aim to provide a platform for the LSE community to unite and to uncover the realities of human trafficking and its effects on its victims.
The six societies will be organising a series of events that will include panels, academic lectures from high profile speakers (including Baroness Cox, a member of House of Lords), a documentary screening, crisis MUN conference on human trafficking, and a drama production that explores human rights through theatre.
Hazel Teck, LLB Law 2019, the Outreach Director of the week had this to say about organising such an event:
Organising the Uncovering Human Trafficking Week came with its many challenges and responsibilities, which includes the co-ordination of nine events with eight student societies over the course of five days. Nevertheless it has been an enriching experience that I hope can be shared with members of the LSE community. I hope this project inspires people to take action against the silent crime of human trafficking, whether as individuals or as part of the Uncovering Human Trafficking Week itself.
It’s always so great to the see the work of several volunteers from different societies come together.To find out more about the week and the events that will be taking place, have a look at the Facebook event page.
