Training and Awareness

To build local, regional, national and international capacity to serve those subjugated and at risk for human trafficking, we offer ongoing training for social service providers, law enforcement, medical providers, educations, religious organizations and anyone who may come in contact with those at risk or in need of help.

Trainings are tailored to the unique needs of the community and/or group. Recognizing the scope and complexity of the issue of human trafficking, we also offer trainings on a number of topics that we believe create a context in which human trafficking can occurs. Our staff has a variety of expertise and will work with you to meet your needs.
