Addressing Sex Trafficking in Tribal Communities
Adults and children in tribal communities are especially vulnerable to becoming victims of sex trafficking. Such trafficking is a widespread, and tribal judges are in a unique position to help identify victims and assist in addressing impacted families. This webinar will focus on: describing and discussing the ways predators groom vulnerable women and men, talking about the connection between foster care/children in care and trafficking, recounting personal stories of trafficking, providing insights into recognizing survivors when they come home, and offering insights on how to provide trauma-informed responses that create safe environments for survivors and their families to heal.
