Reservations are now closed for "Combating Slavery in the 21st Century," a conference scheduled for Wednesday, April 9, 2014, from 3:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. EST at the United Nations in New York City. The event is a collaboration between the Government Law Center at Albany Law School, the United Nations Academic Impact, and the Nelson A. Rockefeller Institute of Government.

Panel topics will include "Slavery in the 21st Century: Continuing Impact, Lasting Vestiges and Modern Forms," and "Tactics of the Modern Abolitionists."
