Childeren in Slavery



November 14, 2005- UFMEP President Sally Kader participated as a panelist at the “Children in Slavery – The 21st Century Summit” at Georgetown University. The summit, which focused on human trafficking, had an audience that included business leaders and the international diplomatic community. The summit presented experts who work on the front lines investigating human trafficking in its eight faces: sex, war, labor slavery, sex tourism, child pornography, organ and skin, ritual abuse, and torture.

Almost 50 percent of those enslaved in this century are children. The event encouraged the public and persons not a part of this arena to become engaged in the worldwide campaign to end human trafficking. The summit was endorsed by His Excellency Jan Eliasson, President of the UN General Assembly, U.S. President George W. Bush, the U.S. State Department, the Australian Embassy, many law enforcement agencies and several prominent business leaders. Claude Allen, Assistant to the President for Domestic Policy at the White house, was one of the speakers. Journalist Christine Dolan, the organizer of this event, said, "This is a global shame shared by all of us. Every ten minutes around the clock and across the globe, there are between 15 to 76 new trafficked victims. This is a global phenomenon with drastically dangerous ramifications not only for society but for future generations to come."
