Vandal Alum presents “The Project to End Human Trafficking”

Lynsie Clott, Program Manager of The Project to End Human Trafficking (PEHT), is hosting “Human Trafficking 101: Unveiling slavery in the Northwest” on Monday, September 9th. The event will be held at the 1912 Center in Moscow at 7pm. Some of the topics that will be discussed include:

  • The who, what, when, why and how of human trafficking.
  • The definition, legal framework, and distinguishing trafficking from other forms of exploitation.
  • International, domestic, and local patterns of human trafficking in the Northwest.
  • How to identify and report incidences.
  • Preventative measures.

Clott is native to Moscow and an Idaho Vandal alum. PEHT is a nonprofit located in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania with the mission to pull the atrocities of modern day slavery out from the shadows and work toward the elimination of human trafficking through prevention and awareness programs, forging strategic partnerships, human rights-based advocacy and direct services to survivors. Lynsie manages community outreach activities and is the research specialist.

Lynsie holds a Masters of Public and International Affairs specializing in Human Security Studies and Russian and Eastern European Studies. She has intensely studied human trafficking, trans-national organized crime, and human rights, specifically women and children’s rights. In 2011, Lynsie interned with La Strada International, a European anti-human trafficking coalition where she developed prevention programs and provided direct services to child survivors.
