Laboratory to Combat Human Trafficking

by Ryan Estes, June 18, 2012

Friday, June 15th 2012 was a warm sunny day in Denver, Colorado.

The Laboratory to Combat Human Trafficking hosted a benefit concert at Jake’s. Talklaunch was on hand to document and promote the event. (Estes also performed a brief set) “LCHT is committed to evidence-based research efforts grounded upon objective, verifiable, reliable and replicable data.” To paraphrase, they are social scientists; their work helps the most exploited members of our community: sex workers and migratory workers. Collectively they are passionate, fiercely intelligent and caring. Wonderful people.

Leading up to the event we recorded a podcast. Meagan Morris described some of the work LCHT does. Scroll down to hear musical sets from the musician’s who volunteered their time for the cause.
