Dr. David Batstone will be this year's featured speaker. He is the Professor
of Ethics at the University of San Francisco (USF) School of Management, and
President and Co-founder of the nonprofit organization Not For Sale, which combats human trafficking throughout the globe.
Batstone teaches USF's Capstone Course in Ethics, and serves as Co-Professor in
the Erasmus Program, which is a living-learning community that explores, over
the course of a school year, what social justice means within the US and in
communities around the globe. As a widely published author in both academia and
the popular press, Dr. Batstone's five books address ethical issues at the
crossroads of politics, business, economy, and spirituality.
President and Co-founder of the Not For
Sale anti-human trafficking campaign, Professor Batstone has connected
business leaders, heads of community, celebrities, and students, to raise
awareness of the 27 million human slaves in the world today. His efforts have
inspired thousands of modern day abolitionists to join together in open source
activism to save humanity from slavery.
Not For Sale uses business creation, supply chain evaluation, and
aftercare aid to fight modern-day slavery around the world. By creating
enterprise opportunities for vulnerable communities, offering social services
to survivors and those at-risk to human trafficking, and evaluation the use of
forced labor in mainstream supply chains, Not
for Sale works to ensure that no one is for sale.
