Human trafficking, which is also described as modern day slavery, is rapidly emerging as the 21st Century’s most prominent, pervasive, and complex human rights violation. Human trafficking is a $32 billion criminal industry affecting 27 million people worldwide and includes the recruitment, enslavement, and sale of children and adults for forced labor practices and sexual purposes.

Friedman served as Regional Project Manager for the United Nations Inter-Agency Project on Human Trafficking from 2006 – 2012. He designed and managed both country and regional counter-trafficking programs in Asia, helped to establish a counter-trafficking regional training center, and participated in resource mobilization and production of two award-winning films on human trafficking. Friedman is frequently cited in the news media on issues related to human trafficking including CNN, BBC, SCMP (South China Morning Post), Economist, New York Times, Herald Tribune etc. and is frequently invited to speak at conferences around the world.

Presented by Todd DePastino

In recognition of the 100th anniversary of the outbreak of World War I, Todd DePastino presents his program, “Origins of the Great War, 1914.” The Great War, as it was known, is the seminal event of modern history because it unleashed the demons of the 20th century: Communism, Fascism, the Great Depression, and World War II.  The war killed 10 million people, swept away four empires, and sparked revolutions from the western border of France to the Sea of Japan.  Yet, precisely how and why it happened is still something of a mystery.  An archduke gets murdered in Sarajevo on June 28, and six weeks later, the world is at war.  Come hear the story, and understand why, after a century, it haunts us still.  Light refreshments will be available after the presentation. Register online to attend or call 724.941.9430.

Facilitator: Julie Ann Sullivan, Certified Laughter Leader

What is a Laughter Club? Laughter Clubs promote laughter inside to support happiness outside. Participants get together to use laughter to improve health and outlook, as laughter can reduce stress, strengthen your immune system, and lower your blood pressure. Laughter Clubs utilize a systematic activity approach that is based on a foundation of practices, such as yoga, meditation, and modern medical science. Members of Laughter Clubs are engaged in active and interactive participation. Register for this program online, at the library's circulation desk, or call 724-941-9430. "Drop-Ins" are always welcome and they can bring a friend. This is an introductory session; recurring meeting dates will be determined at first meeting.
