Author & teacher Stuart Perrin interviewed on trafficking women, and what's being done to stop it.

Trafficking women and girls into sexual slavery is a global nightmare.  Over half a million women are sold across international borders, the vast majority of them are sold into sexual slavery.  This happens the world over, and the US is no exception.

Stuart Perrin was working in Nepal when he became acutely aware of this issue.  In response he started The Bahini Foundation, and created a safe place for girls escaping trafficking in Nepal.  

Stuart has re-established The Bahini Foundation in Oregon, and is continuing to find ways to educate the public on the horrors faced by girls sold into sexual exploitation.  He has written the novel Little Sisters based on his work in this area.

KBOO reporter Jennifer Kemp spoke with Blair Bobier of the Pacific Green Party for the evening news. Bobier contests Oregon Secretary of State Kate Brown's decision to bar Green Party candidates from running on the Oregon State ballot. Bobier objects, saying that the Green Party has in the past received more than 1% of votes, legitimately qualifying the party to run candidates on the ballot. The Pacific Green Party has also maintained the necessary numbers of voters allow their candidates to remain on the ballot. Bobier sees the issues as a larger one of democracy and freedom of choice for voters.
