NYIT seminar on human trafficking

April 17, North Shore Branch held a terrific program on trafficking and Hezbollah with Professor Edward Maggio who spoke on issues of human trafficking.

Regarding trafficking (one of our state issues) he noted the surprisingly large numbers involved and our responsibility to be aware of where our inexpensive clothes are made and to avoid companies using slave labor. Companies have responded to citizen pressure.

It was also noted at the meeting that the bills currently in the NYS legislature have problems. More on that when we get more information.

Many thanks to Marcia Singer of NYIT and Joyce Beucher and Barbara Kaim, c0-presidents of North Shore for arranging a super program.
