The Oregon Advisory Committee to the U. S. Commission on Civil Rights is hosting two public meetings—May 1 and May 2—to hear testimony regarding civil rights concerns of human and labor trafficking in the sex, agriculture, and forestry industries and equal protection violations and discrimination based upon the race, national origin, religion, sex, disability, and age of the survivors. Additionally, the Committee will examine the effectiveness of state and local agency programs administered to survivors of human trafficking.

In addition to hearing from a panel of experts, the Committee welcomes members of the public to share their experiences, opinions, concerns, and/or solutions regarding human trafficking in the state on May 1, 2018 in Portland, and May 2, 2018 in Woodburn.
