“Human trafficking involves the use of force, fraud, or coercion to obtain some type of labor or commercial sex act.” (US Dept. of Homeland Security) Although it’s difficult to determine the scope of human trafficking worldwide, as many cases go unreported, the International Labour Organization estimates about 40 million victims of human trafficking internationally.

We each have a shared responsibility to combat human trafficking and we can only help survivors thrive through building the capacity of communities and addressing the root causes that make individuals, families, and communities vulnerable to trafficking. This workshop will increase participants’ human trafficking awareness and discuss the need for coordinated and trauma-informed services before, during, and after exploitation in order to build partnerships with survivors to connect them to resources and empower them to thrive.
