Human Exploitation and Resilience Senior Research Associate Lauren Moton and Research Professor Meredith Dank, along with Yu-Hsuan Liu (CUNY) and Marron collaborator Andrea Hughes, have authored “An Exploration into the Lived Experiences of Young People Forced to Beg and Sell Goods in Kampala, Uganda” in the Journal of Human Trafficking:
