According to the International Labour Organization, an estimated 40.3 million people around the world were living in conditions of modern slavery as recently as 2016. Lawmakers in the United States, Hong Kong, and elsewhere are promoting legislation to prevent, identify, and penalize acts of forced labor, smuggling, and other types of human trafficking and to compensate victims. Multinationals, civil society organizations, and concerned individuals are increasing their efforts to raise awareness. But much remains to be done.

Join the AmCham Law Committee for a special lunchtime event featuring three Hong Kong-based leaders in the fight against human trafficking and modern slavery. Learn about pending legislation, critical areas of need, and pro bono opportunities to contribute to the fight against human trafficking in Hong Kong and the region.

First 15-20 minutes is for networking
Sandwiches and beverages included

Hosted by the Law Committee
