                                                                                                    Program Summary: 

Most Americans today equate slavery as an issue of the American past - synonymous with Abraham Lincoln, the Civil War, and something still read about in volumes of history books. The unfortunate reality is slavery not only exists in the 21st century, but is a $31-billion dollar industry worldwide, second only to the international drug trade. There are an estimated 27-million men, women and children enslaved in 161 countries. The U.S. is no exception. Join us for this important program!
