ANOTHER bureaucrat telling sex workers how they should be self-identifying. LOOK BUDDY! **I** will tell you if I am a victim. You don't get to label me so you can get funding.

Arg! The "demand" argument! You want to squash trafficking? REALLY? Over haul your immigration policy! facepalm

Its a good Webinar but I didn't realize how much it was going to be on slavery of African-Americans. Although important, my desire was to watch it to hear more about human/sex trafficking. Would like to hear more from Mr. CdeBaca but the other gentleman seems to dominate the conversation. He wanders back to human trafficking once in awhile but really wanted to gain more knowledge of human trafficking of current day. I'm a graduate student and my research ties more in with Human Trafficking. I would just change the title to Civil Rights and Human Trafficking for the next go around if we are going to talk about both. Otherwise, some good information.

I would like the US to look into Female abuse in the work force in Guyana, educated female have to have sex with employers to get a job, or to keep the job, and get the Guyana Gov to take steps to this problems human rights. Get it publish in the Daily New in Gyana, making it public awareness. I hope these comments will not get me into trouble? I am an American Citizan, born in Guyana, if given the chance by the American Gov to set up a shop in Guyana investigating this nasty abuse towards woman and Children and bring the abuser to justice. I am asure your money will not go to wase, funding the wrong people.
