Orangeburg, N.Y. – The Rockland Graduate Campus of Long Island University will host a presentation on human trafficking and modern-day slavery on Monday, April 11, 2011. “Human Trafficking: What It Is and How We Can Combat It,” a free presentation open to the public, will feature guest speaker Lindsey Bailey, who is an anti-human trafficking program manager at The Salvation Army World Service Office (SAWSO) in Virginia.

Bailey is responsible for providing technical, administrative and managerial support to each of SAWSO's anti-trafficking projects, including “Hands that Heal,” training people to work with those who have been trafficked.

More people are sold into slavery today than at the height of the trans-Atlantic slave trade over a century ago. Human trafficking involves women, children and men exploited by forced labor, debt bondage, and forced prostitution. It affects millions of people worldwide, including inside the United States.

The April 11 presentation at the Rockland Graduate Campus is from 5:00 - 6:30 p.m. The Campus is located at 70 Route 340 in Orangeburg, N.Y.

For further information on the event, contact Dr. Thomas Nardi, director of counseling programs at the Rockland Graduate Campus of Long Island University, at (845) 450-5429 or thomas.nardi@liu.edu.

Rockland Graduate Campus at Long Island University is located at 70 Route 340 in Orangeburg, New York.
