Forced Labor Slavery/Sustainable Consumption: Conference at St. John’s University, May 3

On May 3, St. John’s University’s Center for Global Development, supported by a Title VI Grant from the US Department of Education, is offering a conference on the topic of forced labor slavery and sustainable consumption.

“The purpose of this conference is to educate the consumer about the persistence of forced labor in the chain of production of most of the goods consumed by the public worldwide. The Brazilians are increasingly becoming pro-active about this de-humanizing issue by trying to address it at its roots: in the chain of production (nas cadeias produtivas). We have much to learn from the successful efforts of the Brazilian people.”–St. John’s University Center for Global Development

May 3, 1 – 7pm, Bent Hall, Room 227, St. John’s University, 8000 Utopia Parkway, Queens, NY 11439

RSVP by April 25 (to adela.ruiz09@stjohns.edu).
