Benjamin Perrin, a law professor at the University of British Colombia and a native of Calgary, only learned that human trafficking was an an issue in Canada after working to help survivors of commercial sexual exploitation in Cambodia. 

His book, Invisible Chains: Canada's Underground World of Human Traffickingis the result of years of research following his realization of the problem in his own backyard. It serves to simultaneously tell a story and advocate for policy that does better at preventing trafficking and protecting victims.

I'd be interested in reading this book. The first thought that comes to mind is 'what's next?' We have the data, we have the stories but we need change at a higher level.

In late 2018, the federal government + other stakeholders came together to create a new national strategy to combat human trafficking. They've outlined next steps pictured below. The New National Strategy to End Human Trafficking is set to be released next winter.

The Toronto Public Library has several copies of this book. Anyone interested in a book club?
