Abstract:

Slavery and involuntary servitude were officially abolished in the United States through enactment of the 13th amendment of the constitution. The 13th amendment was approved on February 1, 1865 by President Abraham Lincoln and ratified by the required number of states by December 6, 1865. Yet, one hundred forty three years later, in 2008, slavery persists in our country and in almost every country in the world.

The modern manifestation of the slave trade is referred to as human trafficking and it ranks as the third most profitable criminal activity in the world following drugs and arms trafficking, with profits totaling approximately US $7 billion yearly.

This presentation will place the global issue of human trafficking within the context of social justice and feminist psychology and provide a model of activism that can be used to address this and other issues where human rights are violated and injustice is perpetrated.
