Thank you for making the 7th Annual Stop Girl Trafficking evening with Dr. Aruna Uprety, on March 20, a great success! We will be sharing updates and photos from the event soon.
An introduction was provided by the inimitable Jon Krakauer. This year, Aruna was joined by two other remarkable people:
Siddharth Kara is one of the world’s leading experts on modern day slavery and trafficking. He is currently a Fellow at the Carr Center for Human Rights at Harvard University. He is recognized as an expert on contemporary slavery and is best known for his award-winning book, Sex Trafficking: Inside the Business of Modern Slavery, the first of three books he has written on the subjects of human trafficking and modern-day slavery. His research was recently written about by The Guardian newspaper in February.
Kimberly Chambers is a world class ultra-distance swimmer who is only the sixth person and third woman to finish the Oceans Seven Challenge, on par with the Seven Summits of mountaineering. She completed the hardest swim in the world – 30 miles unscathed from the Farallon Islands to San Francisco in shark infested waters. Kim is also a feminist and a dreamer who pushes boundaries and inspires courage.
We hope you can join us!
