Human Trafficking: A Global Issue with Local Impact 

Jan Edwards

Mostly we think of human trafficking as an 'over there' issue, however, with the recent arrests of Ghislane Maxwell and Peter Nyguard, the implications are much closer to home. In this session we will look at a global view of human trafficking, bringing it back to our own backyard and what we can do together to disrupt it. 
 Time: 10:30 a.m. – 11:45 a.m.

Employment Law

Attorney Mike Grossman

The workshop explores foundational rights of service industry employees, with a focus on tipped hour waged employees, along with the current legal trends within the Department of Labor and federal courts. Topics include: unpaid hours, valid tip pool schemes, tipped vs. untipped labor, workplace discrimination, tipped wage notice requirements, overtime, common workplace violations, and your legal options to remedy workplace violations.
 Time: 1:00 p.m. – 2:15 p.m.

Racial Wealth Gap Learning Simulation 

Bread for the World

The simulation is an ineractive tool that helps people understand the connections among racial equity, hunger, poverty, and wealth. It is a good first step for people unaware of structural inequality, a support tool for those who want deeper understanding of structural inequality, and a source of information for experts who want to know the quantifiable economic impact of each policy that has widened today's racial, hunger, income, and wealth divides. 
 Time: 2:30 p.m. – 5:15 p.m.
 Venue: Virtual
