Professor Browne-Marshall’s Column in Black Star News is a Call to End Sex Slavery

Associate Professor Gloria Browne-Marshall in the Department of Law, Police Science and Criminal Justice Administration had her column published in Black Star News titled “Sex Trafficking as Modern Day Slavery.” Browne-Marshall portrays the widespread realities of trafficking for prostitution that is occurring in American cities as well as the countries such as Thailand that serve as notorious destination trips for “sex tourists.” At the intersection between 150 anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation and the Senate passing of the Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act (TVPRA), Browne-Marshall calls for a new abolition movement to end the international and domestic trafficking of mostly women and girls for prostitution.
