I want to remind you all that tomorrow is the Modern Human Slavery
event at 7pm at Hillel on 50th and 17th ave (4745 NE 17th Ave)
featuring John Bowe.
John Bowe, award-winning journalist and author of Nobodies: Modern
American Slave Labor and the Dark Side of the New Global Economy,
exposes the illegal outsourcing, immigration fraud and indentured
servitude that create the “everyday low prices” we crave.
In his eye-opening lecture, set against a familiar backdrop -- the
American landscape of shopping malls, outlet stores, and Happy Meals
-- Bowe reveals how humankind’s darker urges remain alive and well,
lingering in the background of every transaction and how
understanding them may lead to overcoming them.
I hope to see you all there!
