SlaveFree Madison Presents Araceli Alonso
European Fontera Sur: Human Smuggling and Trafficking of Women
Goodman Public Library, Madison, WI
This talk is an attempt to bring a human perspective to the issue of smuggling
and trafficking of women into Europe through the southern European border.
Life stories of Nigerian women from Benin-City who migrate to Europe show that language, more concrete words that are charged with deeply rooted cultural meaning, can easily turn smuggling into slavery and trafficking for commercial sexual exploitation.

Human Trafficking in Wisconsin
Pinney Library, Madison, WI
Presented by Rachel Monaco-Wilcox
Cases of human trafficking have been identified in all 72 counties in Wisconsin. Yet most people doubt this, thinking “that can’t be happening here!” If we are in a state of denial, who is helping survivors? Who is working on policies? Who is educating young people about risks? In this talk, Rachel will address the myths and misconceptions around sex trafficking in Wisconsin, illuminate the situation in Wisconsin, explain what led her to start the LOTUS legal clinic in 2013, and share ideas for how citizens can make a difference.
Talk begins at 7pm.
