1 - Social Justice for Hidden Populations

Sun, August 11, 12:30 to 2:10pm, Sheraton New York, Floor: Second Floor, Empire Ballroom West

Session Submission Type: Invited Session


Hidden populations, such as the homeless, drug users, sex workers, those living in fear of being confronted by government authorities, or the mentally ill are often hard to recognize and even harder to study as they won’t often self-identify. This poses a challenge in collecting data and determining how to offer assistance and provide social justice. This session will share a range of work being conducted to provide social justice for hidden populations, including research related to drug users, an example of a community collaborative entrepreneurial initiative to provide housing for the homeless, and an institution of higher education’s advocacy work to raise awareness of human trafficking.
