Interested in social concerns nationally and internationally? The Parker Library educates Parker residents on social issues happening around the world through its monthly Social Science Series program.
The Parker Library is hosting a presentation and discussion on human trafficking on Wednesday, February 24 at 7:00 p.m. Worldwide, 27 million people are being held in slavery today. More than 17,000 are United States citizens.
Associates from the Human Trafficking Clinic at the University of Denver's Josef Korbel School of International Studies will present a lecture and discussion entitled "Slavery 2010: Human Trafficking." According to their web site, the clinic “provides professional research, writing, and educational outreach on human trafficking and all forms of modern day slavery.” The goal is to improve accountability and raise awareness in combating human trafficking and modern day slavery.
In January, the Parker Library hosted a discussion on North Korea as part of the Social Science Series. Every month, Parker residents have a chance to attend a presentation and join in discussions on a variety of subjects. Dates for the next several meetings are March 31, April 29, May 26, June 30, July 28 and August 25. Topics will be announced later.
Location: Parker Library, 10851 S Crossroads Dr., Parker, CO 80134
