Topics to be covered by the experts are: Human Trafficking, Definition, Policy and Prevention; Human Trafficking In India; and Human Mobility and Foreign Policy.
Dottie Laster is on the front lines of awareness, education and training. Her work with such organizations as the Bernardo Kohler Center, as well as the Department of Justice, qualify Laster to work with law enforcement agencies and organizations across the country to get the message to the public that human trafficking is one of the fastest growing crimes affecting every country, even the United States.

She has appeared on several local and national television and radio shows as well as completed training of law enforcement and social workers for the state of Kansas.
