ASU to help feds with human trafficking problem

January 08, 2013

The Obama administration has selected ASU and several other universities to help combat human trafficking. Each college will offer their proposal through a national contest.

The challenge is designed to increase global awareness on human trafficking and galvanize students to create new technology to end modern slavery.

ASU is hosting a community-wide forum Wednesday. It starts at 4:30 p.m. at the Memorial Union. The contest ends Jan. 31, and the semifinalists from around the country will be announced in March.
