Human Trafficking: Understanding how traffickers operate
Human trafficking is a form of modern-day slavery. This crime occurs when a trafficker uses force, fraud, or coercion to control another person for the purpose of engaging in commercial sex acts or soliciting labor or services against his/her will. However the trafficker may use appealing methods towards the victim to initiate contact, leading them into life of human trafficking.
In this workshop we will cover smuggling vs human trafficking, international vs domestic human trafficking, labor trafficking, sex trafficking, victimology recruiting, grooming methodology, trafficking indicators, who the traffickers are, and how to report.
