Lighthouse is a non-profit organization (NPO) that is working to combat human trafficking in Japan. Ms. Fujiwara and Ms. Segawa will talk about this important issue, including how people become victims of trafficking and some real life cases in which Lighthouse intervened and rescued trafficked victims.
Human trafficking is the trade of humans for the purpose of sexual exploitation or forced labor, a serious issue that is occurring in Japan and throughout the world. People living in Japan are often unaware of this issue and the evening event is an opportunity to become informed, raise awareness and make a change.
The event will be conducted in Japanese and English.
