Podcast Series

On November 29th, 2016, WestCoast Children’s Clinic hosted a panel to discuss how racism and misogyny drive child sex trafficking in the United States. As women and their allies across the country voice opposition to policies that explicitly endanger women and girls, the need to address the impact of the child sex trade on girls of color is greater than ever. We created this podcast from a recording of the evening. Please listen to this important conversation with five national experts in the anti-trafficking movement.
