Human Trafficking and the Law: Labor Trafficking
January 27 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
Date: Thursday, January 27, 2022, 2:00 p.m. – 3:30 p.m.
Description: Labor trafficking – also called “forced labor” is far more common that people think, here in North Florida and around the nation. Both the civil and criminal sides of the justice system – and our entire community – are vitally important to recognizing this reality, preventing forced labor, and fully supporting survivors. This includes active civil litigation against traffickers and taking action in the courts to ban goods coming into the U.S. from “supply chains” of forced labor. Each of us, as consumers, can also help by buying and supporting trafficking free goods and services.
Featured Speakers: Martina E. Vandenberg, Founder and President and Fainess Lipenga, Training Advisor, both of the Human Trafficking Legal Center and FSU College of Law Human Trafficking and Exploitation Law Project.
Hosted by the FSU College of Law and Co-sponsored by Legal Services of North Florida
CLE credit: This program has been approved for 2 hours of general CLE credit.
