CMA, FES and Mujeres in Zamboanga organized the second AJG Advocacy Forum on OFWs, Irregular Migration and Trafficking on July 26, 2006 at Grand Astoria Hotel, Zamboanga City.
The forum focused on migration through and from Mindanao –both regular and irregular. It addressed the following questions: How does migration impact on Mindanawons specially the women, their families and the island as a whole. What is their situation and the problems they confront? How extensive are illegal recruitment, trafficking and undocumented migrants? How does government address overseas migration and the problems it entails?
