Indian activist Kailash Satyarthi, a laureate of Nobel Peace Prize in 2014 along with Malala Yousafzai, has been rescuing children from child labor. Child labor is not just children working, but often is slavery or human trafficking with confinement, violence and threat, forcing children to work for long hours with almost no pay.

Let us learn by watching the movie how and why Kailash started and continues his activities, as well as the reality of child labor and the people who rescue and rehabilitate the victims.

NFSJ Café, sponsored by the anti-trafficking non-profit Not For Sale Japan is a casual learning opportunity with tea and snacks to hear or watch movies on related issues. Come and join us!

◆Presentation Background:
India’s journey against all forms of exploitation including Human Trafficking has been long arduous but substantial. Right from creating powerful laws to building social institutions and empowering the culture – India has had its successes and failure.

It took a dedicated and committed woman like Sunitha Krishnan who herself is a sexual assault survivor, to dwell into the deeper and finer aspects of the implementation of the law, policies, schemes, and procedures and show a mirror to the society.

Come learn how one woman fought a rigid system through her organization Prajwala to create enabling procedures through legal activism. We shall discuss the organization’s work and use their court case as an example to understand how they created a ripple effect of change across the Nation.

◆Admission: Free
