You are cordially invited to a student luncheon celebrating the recipient of the 2011 Gleitsman International Activist Award: Teresa Ulloa Ziaurriz, Director of the Coalition Against Trafficking in Women-Latin American and Caribbean (CATW) The crusade against international sex trafficking has been fraught with apathy and a populace all too willing to turn a blind eye to trafficking’s horrors. For more than four decades, Teresa Ulloa Ziaurriz has been a tireless advocate for women’s rights and for combating this international scourge by attacking the root of the problem, by educating young males about the demand for commercial sex. Ms. Ulloa-Ziaurriz will give short remarks and then will engage in discussion about her work with CATW, taking questions from both the moderator and the audience. This luncheon presents a unique opportunity for students to have direct interaction with one of the leading activists in the fight to combat the trafficking of women throughout Latin America. A boxed lunch will be served. Sponsored by: the Harvard Kennedy School’s Program on Human Trafficking and Modern Day Slavery, the Women and Gender Caucus (WAG-C), Human Rights Professional Interest Council (HR PIC), Hispanic/Latino Caucus, the Latin-American Caucus and the Harvard Journal of Hispanic Policy.
