LGBTQ2S+ Youth and Human Trafficking: A Dialogue

Webcasts / Webinar / LGBTQ2S+ Youth and Human Trafficking: A Dialogue

LGBTQ2S+ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer/Questioning, and Two-Spirit) youth in rural and urban settings report higher rates of dating and sexual violence and are more likely to experience homelessness and be trafficked due to cultural norms that devalue and subject LGBTQ2S+ to harm. Recent changes in state and community practices have impacted youth participation in healthcare, education, and other social services that place LGBTQ2S+ youth at even more risk to experience harm or be trafficked.

Join us in a conversation for service providers and justice system stakeholders who are interested in creating safer spaces for LGBTQ2S+ youth. During this webinar, we identify key strategies for outreach and providing culturally relevant community connections and services for LGBTQ2S+ youth.
