Hosted by:
CGSC Foundation and KCAUSA logos together as the hosts for the Arter-Rowland National Security Forum
The Arter-Rowland National Security Forum is an exclusive professional information sharing and networking event exclusively for select invitees of the CGSC Foundation and the Kansas City Chapter of the Association
of the United States Army (KCAUSA), the co-hosts of the Forum.

In this fourth presentation of the forum, Lt. Col. John J. Nelson, U.S. Army Retired, Chief Executive Officer of Morris, Nelson & Associates, LLC, and a Senior Research Fellow of the Arthur D. Simons Center, will deliver a presentation on Counter Human Trafficking efforts in the United States.

Nelson will provide an overview of the human trafficking problem in terms of its scope and impact. He will describe the root causes that lead to the victimization of vulnerable persons in our society and the factors that promote individuals becoming traffickers, as well as provide insight into what motivates buyers. He will explore how this modern form of slavery operates as a highly profitable business with complex mechanisms of recruiting, grooming, exploitation, and geography, and its linkages to both gang activity and transnational organized crime. In addition, Nelson will discuss the legal, jurisdictional, mission, funding, and capability challenges facing the various federal, state, local, and non-governmental agencies conducting the interagency fight.

Thank you to our sponsors:
