Surviving Human Tracking in Nepa.  Arla S. Ertz reports back on National Conference for Female Trafficking Survivors and their solidarity work with women around the world.

Women of Shakti Samuha, a Nepali organization founded and run by trafficking survivors, work daily to abolish human trafficking and to sustain other survivors. Recently back from training conducted by these women, and from attending Nepal's 3rd Annual Conference of Female Trafficking Survivors at their request, Arla brings us a presentation about their work building solidarity within Nepal and with women around the world.

Arla is a San Francisco social worker, long-time activist, and WILPF member. She was invited by Harambee Arts to travel to Nepal as part of an international expressive arts therapy team, to be trained by Nepali women trafficking survivors in the expressive arts therapy program they went through to heal their trauma and now use with recently liberated survivors. Arla worked for 10 years for an expressive arts program for homeless children in the San Francisco Bay Area. Presented by Women's International League for Peace and Freedom (WILPF) East Bay and SF branches.   Location: SF Main Library, 100 Larkin, Latino Room in Lower Level.  (back to top)
