Counter Trafficking in Persons Campus Challenge

The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) chose Pepperdine University as the site to introduce its new Counter Trafficking in Persons Campus Challenge yesterday.  Pepperdine students have been heavily involved in combating human trafficking — i.e., modern-day slavery.  Law students, in particular, have been active in this area under the leadership of Jay Milbrandt and the Global Justice Program.

Amy Massey, one of our fantastic third-year students, worked with the International Justice Mission in South Asia during her law school career.  Amy was chosen to represents students during a panel discussion yesterday, and she did a beautiful job!

The new “campus challenge” is, in effect, an opportunity for students to share their creative ideas on how to combat this human rights issue with those in positions to implement them.  You can read more about human trafficking and the challenge at the organization’s website: www.challengeslavery.org.
