On this episode of the Ending Human Trafficking Podcast, GCWJ Director Sandra Morgan and Board Member Dave Stachowiak discuss Sandra’s recent participation at the Commission for Social Development at the United Nations. As a panelist on the only human trafficking panel, Sandra engaged with world leaders looking at the intersection of economic and social development, an intersection where trade in human beings continues to thrive. Economnic and social development are integral threads in untangling the complexity of modern day slavery.
Sandra promoted the adoption of SDG proposals based on the 2010 California Supply Chain Transparency Act, (podcast #17) which requires any company with revenues over $100 million doing business in California to provide a supply chain audit to consumers. It is vital to link the market forces that drive human trafficking to the social development goals in order to craft policies that fuel long-term change.
The 53rd session of the Commission for Social Development at the United Nations spanned ten days of dialogue and debate to design policies that wed economic growth and social development agendas. Dozens of informative panels were offered to the delegates from 91 countries.
