Living in a Karios Moment: Integral Ecology in BLOOD AND EARTH A Fireside Chat with Dr. Roza Pati and Dr. Kevin Bales CMG (POSTPONED)

September 28, 2022 | 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Living in a Karios Moment:
Integral Ecology in BLOOD AND EARTH

A Fireside Chat with Dr. Roza Pati and Dr. Kevin Bales CMG


Join us for a fascinating chat on the intersection of modern slavery and climate change, aimed at exploring ideas on how to respond to the cry of the earth and the cry of the vulnerable: Living in a Karios Moment: Integral Ecology in Blood and Earth.

On September 28, 2022, Dr. Roza Pati, Founding Director of the John J. Brunetti Human Trafficking Academy, will host an insightful discussion with one of the most eminent personalities in anti-trafficking world,  Dr. Kevin Bales CMGProfessor of Contemporary Slavery, and Research Director at The Rights Lab, University of Nottingham, United Kingdom. Demonstrating his thoughts and musings about his book titled Blood and Earth, Dr. Bales writes: “For years I traveled the world meeting people in slavery, trying to understand the depth and truth of their lives. What I saw, heard, and learned changed me, and led me deeper into the work of ending slavery, but I was missing something important. Where there are slaves, the environment is under assault, forests are being destroyed, endangered species are dying, and climate change is worsening – and all of this destruction is driven by profits from products we buy.”

In this 60-minute chat, the audience will have the pleasure of learning from an exceptional authority, one who has inspired the modern anti-trafficking law, policy, and action.

This event is free and open to the public with registration. Light refreshments will be served.  Space is limited.
