Combating Human Trafficking Around the World

Sep 13, 2016

Earlier this year, members of the United Nations met in New Canaan, Connecticut for a workshop on how countries can fight human trafficking.

Their meeting helped lay the groundwork for a new report, which details steps the UN Security Council and private sector can take to counter trafficking -- particularly in areas affected by conflict. 

This hour, we hear from the lead author of that report. We also check in with local and global anti-trafficking advocates, including the founder of an Asia-based non-profit organization. 

Later, New Haven resident and mother Lindsay Mathews joins us. She weighs in on Connecticut’s controversial group home privatization plans -- and tells us why she’s decided to sue the state.
