Survivor Engagement: The Future of the Anti-Trafficking Movement
December 16, 2020 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm
About this Event
The future of the anti-trafficking movement includes survivor engagement and leadership. Join us December 16 @11:30am Washington, DC time for a live streamed panel discussion featuring survivor-leaders and an ally of those with lived experience of human trafficking.
Some areas that will be discussed include: increased economic empowerment of survivors; the importance of mentorship to empower survivors to become leaders; implementing trauma-informed practices (rather than just including survivor voices); and influencing policy.
