Addressing Sex Trafficking in Tribal Communities

Tuesday, September 29, 2020 12:30 pm PT | 1:30 pm MT | 2:30 pm CT | 3:30 pm ET

(90 minutes)

Adults and children in tribal communities are especially vulnerable of becoming victims of sex trafficking. Such trafficking is a widespread issue and tribal judges are in a unique position to help identify victims and assist in addressing impacted families. This webinar will focus on: describing and discussing the ways predators groom vulnerable women and men, talking about the connection between foster care/children in care and trafficking, recounting personal stories of trafficking, providing insights into recognizing survivors when they come home, and practical skills for providing trauma-informed responses that create safe environments for survivors and their families to heal.
