Human Trafficking 101: Is it Here, is it There, or is it Everywhere
From Anita Brown
In recognition of Human Trafficking Prevention month, please join alumnus Brianna Phillips for an in-depth conversation on Human Trafficking; defining what it is and how it can be identified in our local communities.
There will be an opportunity to hear about the vulnerabilities and risk factors that each of us have and how to protect ourselves and others. How a professional can identify warning signs that throughout the various sectors including educational, medical, law enforcement, and human services.
And lastly, we will review cases that have occurred locally and share steps for how you can assist others and connect them to your local resources.
