On Feb 5 th , , Naropa University hosted 25 international visitors from the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs International Visitor Leadership Program organized by the state department to learn more about the crime of human trafficking. The group, comprised of lawyers, administrators, managers, police officers and other officials represented parts all over the globe where human trafficking has reached epic proportions.
In a two-hour presentation, we shared stories about our work, what we learned about the sex trafficking industry in Cambodia, answered questions and engaged in creative activities to illustrate the healing potential of art therapy. Following is some tidbits from the presentation and statistics on the problem of human trafficking both nationally and internationally.
As the multicolored ball of yarn traveled from one international visitor to the next, each participant spoke their name, country and one word that described their experience of being together. It felt both heartening and heartbreaking as each voice entered the circle. Heartening, that there are so many caring individuals standing in solidarity against the crime of human trafficking and heartbreaking that this crime has reached such epic proportions all over the globe.
I would highlight this experience of standing in a circle with my students and officials from all over the world as one of the most meaningful moments of my life. Together we shared and created a vision of a connected world where all people are safe, peaceful and free of suffering. There too was a spark of hope as we witnessed the ball of yarn make its way from one person to the next, connecting us with one thread, with the intention to never forget our time together and our dedication to end the suffering caused by this growing crime.
According to Polaris Project these are the most recent statistics on human trafficking:. Although slavery is commonly thought to be a thing of the past, human traffickers generate hundreds of billions of dollars in profits by trapping millions of people in horrific situations around the world, including here in the U. Traffickers use violence, threats, deception, debt bondage, and other manipulative tactics to force people to engage in commercial sex or to provide labor or services against their will.
