Bagels Beyond Boundaries: Cross-Sector Collaboration to Address Sex-Trafficking

2/2/18, 8:30 AM

About this event

Bagels Beyond Boundaries provides an informal space for students, staff and faculty to engage in discussion over bagels and coffee. Speakers from different sectors will illuminate examples from their own experience or research on ways to bring people together across boundaries to address a particular issue.

Join the Center for Integrative Leadership on Friday, February 2 from 8:30-9:30 am in the Carlson School, room 1-123 for a Bagels Beyond Boundaries conversation about cross-sector collaboration to address sex trafficking led by Lauren Martin, Director of Research at the Robert J. Jones Urban Research and Outreach-Engagement Center (UROC). The issue of sex trafficking has received increased media and public attention in Minnesota with the 2018 Super Bowl coming to Minneapolis. Causes and correlates for participation in the market place involve individual well-being, community-level challenges and deep social and economic inequality and oppression that is intersectional in nature (race, class, gender, age, and more). They include poverty, homelessness, violence, manipulation, exploitation and more. The issue is very hard to tackle because causes and impacts are cross-sector (e.g. criminal justice, social service, advocacy, anti-oppression, etc.) and multi disciplinary (e.g. health, criminology, and more). 

Please visit the University's parking and transportation website to view the latest updates for the week before the Super Bowl. 

Please RSVP if you plan to attend so that we can be sure to have enough bagels and coffee for all: z.umn.edu/2w1h
