Subject: Challenge Slavery | Join the Community! | Win a Prize! Natalie Grant, Abolition International &  USAID would like to invite you to be part of an online community to find solutions to end human trafficking, broadly recognized as modern slavery. Watch the live-stream on Thursday, October 11 as USAID Administrator Raj Shah launches challengeslavery.org at Pepperdine University, beginning at 4:00 p.m. PST (7:00 p.m. EST): https://new.livestream.com/pepperdineuniversity/usaid. Modern slavery victimizes over 20 million women, children, and men worldwide. To put an end to this heinous crime and human rights violation, we must craft new strategies and harness technology in unique and creative ways to find solutions and end exploitation.  Rise to the challenge—submit your ideas and compete for the chance to win a prize for the most innovative solution to combat trafficking in persons. Join now at challengeslavery.org and participate in discussions, learn from experts and connect with students, scholars and practitioners across the world.  Forward this email to your networks and help us build a community of students and researchers fighting slavery! Sincerely, Natalie Grant + Challenge Slavery Community PS: Have a question you want answered during the launch event at Pepperdine? Tweet it to @rajshah using the hashtag #challengeslavery
