The Training Subcommittee spent 2020 conducting numerous virtual trainings for a wide range of audiences, including universities, law enforcement, direct service providers, hospitals and others. For 2021, the Training Subcommittee is excited to continue its goal of providing up-to-date, relevant training content to service providers, law enforcement, first responders, and the general community on human trafficking, know-your-rights, remedies for survivors and other related topics. One of the subcommittee’s main goals for 2021 is to develop tailored train-the-trainer manuals specific to various populations and types of trafficking. We also aim to expand the audiences we deliver training to in an effort to increase identification and appropriate response for trafficking survivors.
Every day in January, we posted content created by members of our task force to highlight the realities of human trafficking locally and nationally. Learn about the impact of COVID-19 on human trafficking, how to separate fact from fiction about how trafficking happens and become knowledgeable about recent cases, relevant research, policies and resources for survivors and advocates.
