"At What Price? Exploitation in our Supply Chains" is the theme of the 16th Annual Human Trafficking Task Force Symposium. "At What Price?" will shine a light on the issues of child labor, slave labor, and human trafficking in our global supply chains. As concerned citizens and consumers, it is important to be aware of the source of the goods we buy and foods we eat. Clothing, foods, electric car batteries - all of these often cost more than the price tags we see.
Here's our line-up:
Taylor Bishop, Fox21 Evening News Anchor, Emcee
Dr. Andrew Hoskins, The Exodus Road - "A Global View of Labor Trafficking: Stories, Supply Chains and Strategies"
Caleb Stewart, Senior Staff Attorney, Anti-Human Trafficking Project, Rocky Mountain Immigrant Advocacy Network - Immigrant Labor Trafficking in the US
Former State Representative Terri Carver and Senior Deputy DA Stephanie Redfield, Wage Theft in Colorado
Jordyn Peppin, Fast Fashion - What it is, Why it Hurts, What to Do
