Training 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 adultswho aresex and labortrafficked 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. This program will cover details of this local initiative as well as what hotels, restaurants, shops, convenience stores, offices,financial institutions and workplaces of all kindsshould know and how they can respond. Non-profit agencies as well as traditional for-profit businesses can benefit from this webinar and this initiative.
