Hacking Human Trafficking Event, Feb 14-15

Human trafficking impacts all sectors of industry, particularly agriculture. Unfortunately, I-65 is a major corridor for this activity. This event on February 14 and 15 will challenge interdisciplinary student teams to design sociotechnical solutions to this widespread problem.

February 14 will focus on setting the stage and framing the problem through keynotes and panel discussions including survivors, law enforcement, company executives, advocacy and support groups. The morning session is open to the public. During the afternoon and evening, students will work in teams and with content experts as mentors to develop potential solutions.

This is a 150th event co-sponsored by the Polytechnic, Discovery Park, Purdue Data Mine and Purdue Peace Project.
