Ahead of the curve: A banker’s podcast episode 10 – Human trafficking

Unveiling human trafficking: Perspectives, realities, and strategies

Human trafficking – a form of modern slavery – is one of the fastest-growing criminal activities in the world, exploiting over 45 million people and generating an estimated $150 billion in profits each year. While global in reach, human trafficking also affects individuals, communities, and economies across the United States. Join Brad Jeffery, founder of MADE FREE, and Heather Bellino, CEO of Texas Advocacy Project, as we discuss human trafficking’s consequences and what financial institutions can do to help identify and prevent it.
