“Human trafficking is an illegal violation of human and civil rights that is destroying the lives of women, men, teens and children around the globe. Students in the National Seminar will explore various aspects of human trafficking from political, theological, economic and cultural perspectives. Those on the D.C. trip will focus on domestic issues, with students on the New York trip focusing on international issues involved.
The National Seminar Trips are designed to involve students in the intersection of volunteer service, social justice advocacy, lived faith, ministry and institutions that care about the well-being of society. The Seminar is hosted by the Board of Church and Society of the United Methodist Church, located on Capitol Hill in Washington D.C. and across from the United Nations Building in New York City. These trips include transportation, food, lodging, seminar, direct volunteer service and visiting religious, national and other sites.”–Southwestern.edu
