Uprooting Demand: Human Trafficking in Hawaii

Location: Student Services Center Room W-201

This presentation will discuss human trafficking in Hawaii, the fastest growing multi-billion dollar worldwide criminal enterprise. Here in Hawaii we can powerfully impact this exploitation through our Pule (prayers), attitudes and actions. Palekana is a Hawaiian word meaning “safe and sound.” Through Palekana we have the ability to reset our course, finding hope and healing for ourselves and others, including buyers, sellers (traffickers) and victims/survivors who have all been entrapped in different forms of bondage. Presented by Melody Stone of the Hawaii Island Coalition Against Human Trafficking. Sponsored by UH Hilo International Student Services and the United Nations Association-Hawaii Island Chapter. Free and open to the public.
