UC San Diego is a leader in the effort to stop human trafficking.  Yesterday, leaders from academia, industry and government gathered on campus to raise awareness and find solutions to the global crisis.  Chancellor Khosla provided opening remarks at the “No More No More” human trafficking awareness program, which featured a keynote speech from San Diego County District Attorney Summer Stephan and a panel discussion on the topic.  The Chancellor talked about the university’s partnerships and the involvement of students, faculty and staff, to create awareness and help our community members become defenders and ambassadors in the fight against human trafficking.  He also affirmed the university’s commitment to lead way in solving some of today’s greatest social inequities through collaboration and empowerment.
