Every Survivor in The Center
Where is the center of the movement to end human trafficking? In an era of disinformation, listening to survivors means understanding that human trafficking happens in many forms and predominantly impacts Black, Indigenous People of Color.
Throughout May, we will be offering a webinar series focusing on the intersections of human trafficking, racial justice, and indigenous people’s rights. This free series will provide tools to community partners and service providers as we take a deep dive into human trafficking in all its forms.
