International Women's Day
2019 Counter Trafficking
Training and Awareness Summit
Human trafficking is modern-day slavery and involves the use of force, fraud, or coercion to obtain some type of labor or commercial sex act. Every year, millions of men, women, and children are trafficked in the United States and countries around the world. It is estimated that human trafficking generates many billions of dollars of profit per year, second only to drug trafficking as the most profitable form of transnational crime. Victims of human trafficking can be any age, gender, race, or immigration status; they live in cities, suburbs, and rural areas.
In conjunction with International Women's Day, Johnson University and Community Coalition Against Human Trafficking have partnered to offer a Counter Trafficking Training and Awareness Summit. You are the solution. This training is designed to introduce you to the issue of human trafficking, how to identity when and to whom it is happening, and to learn intervention and prevention strategies. At the conclusion of this training, you will have the tools and knowledge to be an advocate for counter trafficking and a resource for those being trafficked. Each registered participant will receive 8 hours of training, a Certificate of Completion, access to digital tools, opportunities to network and refreshments/lunch.
Summit participants will learn:
- What human trafficking is
- How and where human trafficking occurs
- Strategies and available tools to help fight human trafficking
- Sector specific actions and responses
