About This Event

Human trafficking is the fastest growing and tied as the second-largest criminal industry worldwide.

By reframing and humanizing an issue that is often sensationalized and stigmatized, we can begin to understand how human trafficking impacts our youth and families. This interactive presentation will help create a clearer vision of what human trafficking may look like in our Indiana communities.  

During this workshop you will: 

  • understand the definitions of human trafficking under federal and state law; 
  • recognize risk factors that make youth vulnerable to being exploited, as well as what makes them less likely to identify as a victim and less likely to leave a trafficking situation; 
  • be able to identify victims and how to report a suspected case; and 
  • learn what intervention and victim services are available locally, regionally and statewide.
