Training Description

The Georgia state line is less than 30 minutes from many of us in North Florida, making it of great value to learn how we can collaborate with our neighbor. This presentation introduces you to human trafficking in Georgia and feature presenters who are experts in Georgia’s anti-trafficking efforts. Topics includes the protection and responses to child sex and labor trafficking (and Georgia’s recent work with local Child Advocacy Centers and youth who are victims of child sexual exploitation and trafficking), recent findings and recommendations from a new report on labor trafficking, and how we can assist one another in our anti-trafficking advocacy and survivor support.
