WSU Vancouver will discuss sex trafficking at lecture series

Sex trafficking is the theme for the 2013 Public Affairs Lecture Series at Washington State University Vancouver.

Community members are invited to participate in two upcoming series events.

These are:

*Engage-In: Join the Fight Against Sex Trafficking,” from 2 to 4 p.m. Nov. 8 in the Firstenburg Student Commons. Guests will learn how to contact legislators to effect change; sign a Students Against Sex Trafficking pledge card; learn how sex trafficking affects Clark County and the Pacific Northwest; engage in civil discourse and discuss sex trafficking topics.

*Playground: The Child Sex Trade in America,” from 4:30 to 7 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 14 in the Dengerink Administration Building. “Playground,” a documentary directed by Libby Spears, follows the trail of a missing girl in the U.S. and is a “comprehensive look,” at the child sex trade in North America.

A screening of the movie will be followed by a question-and-answer session. Guests will have an opportunity to meet representatives from and learn about local organizations that support sex trafficking victims.

The Public Affairs Lecture Series is an annual event hosted by WSU Vancouver with the objective of enlightening students, faculty, staff and guests by presenting a stimulating, sometimes controversial, topic in public affairs. For more information, visit
