Reception at 6:30

In our study on Human Trafficking, we learned about the current prevalence of sex trafficking. During World War II, Korean women were taken as sex slaves for Japanese soldiers. They are now in their 90s and are telling their story through a book and a film, Spirits' Homecoming. The SMU Embrey Human Rights Program is sponsoring their presentation at SMU.

Come enjoy Korean foods and the traditional Korean solo dance, Sai Pui Yi, along with tributes to the "comfort women" victims.

The presentation is free and open to the public.
