Human Trafficking and Disabilities: What We Need to Know
February 17 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
Without adequate social accommodations and supports to create equity, persons with disabilities may be vulnerable to exploitation, including human trafficking. Vulnerabilities may include a lack of access to human trafficking awareness training, legal and victims’ rights advocacy, mental health education and services, societal isolation, and economic support resources as well as challenges with reporting abuse, all of which increase the risk of exploitation. This program will explore human trafficking and disability advocacy realities and what we can do to take action. This discussion is a complement to the hybrid January 26, 2023 program, “The Intersection of Human Trafficking and Persons With Disabilities” and will go deeper, exploring – but not repeating – issues raised there. You do not have to have attended the January 26 program to benefit and learn, but if you wish to view it in advance, you may do so here: https://surviveandthriveadvocacy.org/training-education-resources/
