Local Workplaces Taking Action to End Human Trafficking
January 21, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
Date: Friday, January 21, 2022, 1 – 2:30 p.m.
Location: Online webinar
Description: Everyone in the community should be able to recognize and respond to human trafficking. In particular, the business community has a unique and important role in preventing trafficking and safely and effectively responding. Whether open to the public or not, employees, managers and others in the workplace can be the eyes and ears of the community when it comes to both supporting the children and adults who are sex and labor trafficked and helping the justice system to hold traffickers accountable. The Survive and Thrive Advocacy Center (STAC) with funding from Leon County, Florida has developed a training initiative to give the thousands of businesses and others in our area information about what to look for, how to recognize signs and patterns of sex or labor trafficking and what to do if they suspect human trafficking is occurring. Presenters: Robin Hassler Thompson, Executive Director, STAC; and Marina Anderson, Florida Department of Children and Families Regional Human Trafficking Coordinator for Northeast and Northwest Regions. This is the first monthly “3rd Friday” human trafficking training program for 2022.
Sponsors: STAC and the International Rescue Committee, in affiliation with the Big Bend Coalition Against Human Trafficking (BBCAHT)
