Human Trafficking Juvenile Justice: Statewide and Local Responses

This FREE webinar one of the “Third Friday” community training 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!
What happens when children who have experienced trafficking through commercial sexual exploitation or whose labor has been exploited become involved with the juvenile justice system? This presentation will describe what happens when trafficked youth encounter the juvenile justice system. You will learn about how the juvenile justice and child welfare systems team up to identify and respond to possible victims, the statewide structure guiding anti-trafficking policy for exploited children, the importance of diversion, and what we can do in collaboration to support and prevent youth from being trafficked in the first place.
Presenter: Katherine Gomez, Ph.D., Director of Human Trafficking Intervention, Florida Department of Juvenile Justice.
