Event Summary

On Thursday, October 16, 2014, the McCain Institute hosted the kick-off conversation of our Human Trafficking Conversation Series, “Human Trafficking 101,” a one-on-one discussion between Mrs. Cindy McCain and Ernie Allen, President and CEO of the International Center for Missing & Exploited Children at The Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication in Downtown Phoenix.

The McCain Institute’s commitment to strengthening character-driven global leadership is reflected in its own efforts to support humanitarian action. Inspired by Mrs. Cindy McCain’s life-long support of humanitarian causes, the Institute has taken a focus on the critical humanitarian area of human trafficking.

Through the Human Trafficking Conversation Series, the McCain Institute seeks to raise awareness and educate the public on the complex issue that is human trafficking and ways that we can help eliminate it.
