  • Nicholas D. Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn are co-authors of Half the Sky. Kristof writes an Op-Ed column for The New York Times. WuDunn is an investment advisor, with a focus on philanthropy. Together, they won a Pulitzer Prize for their coverage of China. They have also won a George Polk Award and an Overseas Press Club Award.
  • Human trafficking is modern-day slavery. It involves one person controlling another and exploiting him or her for work. Like historical slavery, human trafficking is a business that generates billions of dollars a year. But unlike historical slavery, human trafficking is not legal anywhere in the world. Instead of being held by law, victims are trapped physically, psychologically, financially or emotionally by their traffickers.
  • Stories about human trafficking are often set in far-away places, like cities in Cambodia, small towns in Moldova, or rural parts of Brazil. But human trafficking happens in cities and towns all over the world, including in the United States. Enslaved farmworkers have been found harvesting tomatoes in Florida and picking strawberries in California. Young girls have been forced into prostitution in Toledo, Atlanta, Wichita, Los Angeles, and other cities and towns across America. Women have been enslaved as domestic workers in homes in Maryland and New York. And human trafficking victims have been found working in restaurants, hotels, nail salons, and shops in small towns and booming cities. Wherever you live, chances are some form of human trafficking has taken place there.
  • Human trafficking doesn&apos;t discriminate on the basis of race, age, gender, or religion. Anyone can be a victim. Most of the human trafficking victims in the world are female and under 18, but men and older adults can be trafficking victims too. While poverty, lack of education, and belonging to a marginalized group are all factors that increase risk of trafficking, victims of modern-day slavery have included children from middle-class families, women with college degrees, and people from dominant religious or ethnic groups.
  • trafficking victims.Human trafficking isn&apos;t just in your town - it&apos;s in your home, since human trafficking victims are forced to make many of the products we use everyday, according to ProductsofSlavery.org. If your kitchen is stocked with rice, chocolate, fresh produce, fish, or coffee, those edibles might have been harvested by trafficking victims. If you&apos;re wearing gold jewelry, athletic shoes, or cotton underwear, you might be wearing something made by slaves. And if your home contains a rug, a soccer ball, fresh flowers, a cell phone, or Christmas decorations, then slavery is quite possibly in your house. Human trafficking in the production of consumer goods is so widespread, most people in America have worn, touched, or consumed a product of slavery at some point.
  • The good news is not only that we can end human trafficking around the world, we can end it within a generation. But to achieve that goal, everyone needs to work together. Already, activists around the world are launching and winning campaigns to hold governments and companies accountable for human trafficking, create better laws, and prevent trafficking in their communities. You can start a campaign on Change.org to fight trafficking in your community. You can also fight trafficking by buying from companies that have transparent and slave-free supply chains, volunteering for or donating to organizations fighting trafficking, and talking to your friends and family about the issue. Together, we can fight human trafficking … and win.

    62. 62. Kristina’s Favorite Session<br />Favorite Session <br />   “Keeping Teams on Track”<br />Teaching Points<br />We need to discuss and debate, even if it makes meetings longer <br />Debate during meetings actually saves time by helping to avoid “parking lot meetings” after meetings <br />We should always stick to the facts during debate and never make it personal <br />Open debate can ensure that everyone’s ideas are considered <br />Debate can help keep us focused on the mission<br /> Bottom line: If something does not support our mission, it does not need to happen<br />Dr. Mimi Hull, President, <br />Hull & Associates<br />
    63. 63. So What Did We Learn?<br />Sessions Attended<br />- The Founder: Leading Through Creating an Organization<br />- Collaborative Decision-Making<br />- Keeping Teams on Track<br />Noelle Fassnacht, Community Impact VP <br />

    68. 68. Danielle’s Favorite Session<br />Favorite Session <br />“Collaborative Decision-Making”<br />Teaching Points<br />How to identify decision- making styles of myself and my fellow leaders.<br />Choosing the correct decisions-making method for the right situation.<br />Small boards and groups allow for better and more productive decision making process.<br />Don’t allow members to lose their excitement in the Junior League. Members learn a lot from ODIs and return with new and fresh ideas. Getting provisionals involved in the training process it important.<br />Once a decision has been made: Manage the Change. If change is not managed, then this can result in a loss.<br />When dealing with a board or a committee, it is important to know the various decision–making roles and styles.<br />A consensus decision-making process is the vest method. Everyone has been heard and can live with the decision.<br /><ul><li>Naomi Chavez Peters, </li></ul>Director of Leadership and <br />Employee Development at <br />Salesforce.com<br />
