Human Trafficking in Indian Country: Understanding, Collaborating, and Responding
January 20 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
Description: Historical trauma and current risk factors make Indigenous people vulnerable to many forms of victimization including labor and sex trafficking. Education and understanding of the prevalence of human trafficking among Native populations is vital. How do we build trust and work in partnership with Tribes and Tribal programs, develop meaningful collaborations, and work to meet the needs of Native survivors of human trafficking? What can we do to provide culturally appropriate programming? What are the linkages between human trafficking and missing or murdered Indigenous people? Presenters will explore these topics and more.
Mitzi Pope, LCSW, is Yuchi and an enrolled member of The Muscogee Nation and
Shira Rosenthal Phelps both work for Tribal Tech LLC and as contractors with The Human Trafficking Capacity Building Center.
