YPSILANTI – Three of Michigan’s top public law officials will discuss the complex and degrading practice of human trafficking during a panel discussion at the Eastern Michigan University Student Center on Tuesday, March 11.
The panel will include Carol Isaacs, Chief Deputy Attorney General for the state of Michigan, Assistant Attorney General Kelly Carter, and the Director of Crime Victim Advocacy for the office, John Lazet.
The talk, sponsored by the EMU Women’s Resource Center, will run from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. in room 300 of the Student Center.
The three panelists each take a special interest in human trafficking - both supporting victims and holding the perpetrators accountable.
The three serve on the Michigan Commission on Human Trafficking, and co-authored the commission’s 2013 Report on Human Trafficking.
The panel will address the legislation currently proposed, the sophisticated nature of human trafficking systems, and how we can best prevent this crime from taking place.
Light refreshments will be served. The event is part of a series of talks and presentations honoring Women’s History Month at EMU, and is co-sponsored by the EMU Student Leader Group and the Office of the President.
