Human Trafficking in Indian Country: Identify and Respond
Human Trafficking in Indian Country: Identify and Respond Developed and Presented by Jeri Moomaw, Executive Director, Innovations Human Trafficking Collaborative
Innovations HTC is a human rights organization working to eradicate sex and labor trafficking throughout the Nation. Our focus is on raising awareness to prevent human trafficking and ensuring that frontline professionals are trained to identify and effectively respond to trafficking victims.
Why is this workshop important to Tribal Communities and neighboring communities? Indian Country Today reports “Over the next few years, human trafficking will become one of the top three crimes against Native women.” Native people, are vulnerable to traffickers, but by raising awareness of human trafficking empowers stakeholders and community members to gain knowledge to be a part of the solution. Workshop participants will be educated and empowered to make a difference in their communities and in the lives of those affected by exploitation.
