“A Cup of Justice” Restoring Human Trafficking Survivors through Restitution
May 20 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
This monthly free certificate training program is one of the “Third Friday” community events hosted by BBCAHT and STAC to inform and engage the North Florida community and beyond. We are happy to extend this invitation to friends and colleagues – please join us!
Victims of human trafficking face numerous obstacles to justice. Under federal law, mandatory restitution for trafficking survivors — compensation in a criminal trafficking case — is mandatory. But restitution is rarely ordered, and even more infrequently collected. Many survivors find their experience in the criminal justice system re-victimizing. They are forced to navigate complex victims’ compensation and criminal justice systems without legal representation. Human trafficking laws have provided both child and adult victims with some protections, but there are still hurdles for many victims looking to rebuild their lives. Survivors have the right to bring civil suits, but this process may be confusing and intimidating. Please join us for a discussion with a lived-experience expert of domestic child sex trafficking to learn more about navigating the legal system in pursuit of justice.
The Florida Bar approved this program for 2 hours of Intermediate Level Continuing Legal Education (CLE) credit.
