Free the Slaves (Still!)

Come hear Kevin Bales speak about modern slavery and what you can do to stop it.

Thursday, November 1, 2007, 6-8 pm, at the World Affairs Council in San Francisco. You can pre-register here for guaranteed seating, but you don't have to - you can just come at 5:30 and check in.

From the WAC website (edited by me to include the links):

In his 1999 book, Disposable People, Kevin Bales brought to light the existence of modern slavery and described how, nearly two hundred years after the slave trade was abolished, global slavery stubbornly persists. In his new book, Ending Slavery, Bales again presents the ideas and insights that can finally lead to slavery's extinction and freedom for the 27 million people currently held in slavery worldwide. Recalling his own involvement in the antislavery movement, he recounts the lives and stories of today’s slaves, and explains how governments and citizens can build a world without slavery. President of the human rights organization Free the Slaves, he joins the Council to discuss what is needed to bring global slavery to an end and how to rebuild the lives of freed slaves and victims of human trafficking.

Cosponsored by the Human Rights Center at UC Berkeley, San Francisco Monthly Meeting of the Religious Society of Friends & Stacey’s Bookstore
