Join us at the
Anti-Human Trafficking Poetry Slam
|In the bustling market of the midnight trade,|
Echoes a silence; in the shadows, it wades.
The currency is human; in this cruel exchange,
An industry born of a world deranged.
|Control and abuse, a cycle repeated,|
In the heart of our industry, freedom is defeated.
A disoriented face, a look of despair,
Invisible chains in the open air.
|Join us for a new look at a serious topic: human trafficking. There were over 24.9 million cases of human trafficking reported worldwide in 2022 alone. Victims are often trafficked through the very hotels we frequent for industry events. We’ll be using poetry to help drive home the message to our fellow meeting and event professionals.|

|Exhibitors include partner organizations that support victims and fight similar unjust causes. |
The event will conclude with an update from Lisabeth Thomas, on the “Not on My Watch” Awareness Campaign, an initiative of Texas Women in Business with support from the Governor’s Commission for Women.
