How One DSW Candidate is Combating Human Trafficking

According to the International Labour Organization, there are 5.4 victims of modern slavery for every 1,000 people across the globe. One in four of those are children, and women and girls are disproportionately affected by forced labor.

When a U.S. Army veteran and current DSW candidate learned about the reality of human trafficking during her final semester in the MSW program at USC, she felt compelled to take action.
