Responding to Human Trafficking from an Indigenous Lens
28 February @ 8:30 am - 4:30 pmFree
For decades First Nations, Inuit, and Métis communities have been addressing issues of exploitation and violence experienced by their respective communities. To recognize and support ongoing Indigenous community efforts, Kenora Sexual Assault Centre will be hosting a day-long event to bring together Indigenous Culture & expertise, lived experiences, community organizing, and resources in a meaningful way. The event will be led by key note speakers Bridget Perrier, Co-founder of SEXTRADE 101 and Suzanne Smoke, Anti Human Trafficking Coordinator of Muskoka Parry Sound Sexual Assault Centre.
The focus of this event will be highlighting solutions rooted in the enhancement of choice and agency for Indigenous women and girls. Concepts such understanding the origins of sexual exploitation and sex-trafficking, exiting, exit strategies and harm reduction will be discussed from an Indigenous, trauma-informed lens.
