Maya discusses the story behind the Anti-trafficking Panel
Recently, two members of our book club - Maya Morena & Kate Zen (representing Red Canary) participated in a trafficking & migration panel (with Aya Tasaki Policy Director of WomanKind) speaking to the Peace & Social Action Committee (PSAC). Originally this event was supposed to be a round-table discussion between various diverse groups with widely differing positions on labor rights, migration, sex work and trafficking. Unfortunately, upon the release of the full participants list, all of the "anti-trafficking" organizations refused to participate in a panel which included an undocumented immigrant and sex worker, claiming that they did not want to be "associated in any illegal activity." Maya Morena discusses the story behind why The Partnership for the Eradication of Human Trafficking, the Lifeway Network, and Mentari dropped out of the panel.
