Tune in at 8 a.m. Hawaii time Tuesday Dec. 6 at to watch the presentations.

The House Natural Resource Democratic forum examines recent reports of forced labor and human trafficking in the seafood industry; discuss legal frameworks that have the potential to combat labor and human rights violations at sea; and explore multi-stakeholder initiatives that promote the safety and working conditions of fishermen. The panel is open to Members of Congress, staffers, the media, and the public.
