Event Report: NFSJ Cafe #20 “Human Trafficking in Japan?”

As announced, we have held the 20th NFSJ Cafe online on June 11. It was our first public online event and it went well with 32 participants from Hokkaido to Osaka. Mariko Yamaoka, Director of NFSJ, gave lecture on the modern slavery structure, what is happening in Japan, and what we can do to end it. We had short but insightful group discussions twice in 6 groups. Some participants were concerned about foreign technical interns and foreign students living in their neighborhood. Some were concerned about the billboard ads visible in town to allure young girls into sex industry. We hope that we can meet the participants in person someday.
