Your assignment for today is to research a non-governmental organization that focuses on combating human trafficking/slavery in the United States. The organization can operate on a local, state, regional, or national level. Be able to answer the following questions on your chosen group, either in class discussion or in your reading response:
-When was it founded?
-What is its mission statement?
-What aspect(s) of human trafficking does the group focus on? (if there are specific aspects the group emphasizes)
-What strategies does the group emphasize in combating human trafficking?
-Can you identify measures that could be used to assess how successful the group has been in combating human trafficking?
-Does the group cooperate with other NGOs or government agencies?
-Does the information provided by the group seem accurate/credible?
-What media coverage of the organization’s work has there been (if any)? Has there been praise and/or criticism of the group?
This assignment constitutes part of your class participation grade; if you do not post a comment _prior_ to class time claiming your NGO, your final course grade will be reduced by .5%.
Each student must choose a different group (i.e. no students can research the same group). To claim your group, respond to this post with a comment that includes the group’s title. If you are unable to post a comment, email me.
