Grounding & Growing: Tools for a Powerful Anti-Trafficking Movement
Hilton Alexandria Mark Center, March 20-21, 2019
The landscape of anti-trafficking work continues to shift. Advocates, law enforcement, survivors, prosecutors, and allies are navigating volatile and harmful policy changes while trying to provide effective services to survivors and bring human traffickers to justice. This reactionary environment has left little time to build core skills and has created new tensions along old fault lines. It has also fortified the resolve of anti-trafficking stakeholders committed to a rights-based approach and created new opportunities for collaboration. While traffickers continue to exploit those made vulnerable, and systemic barriers continue to impede progress, professionals must maintain focus, develop new strategies to protect victims, and sharpen the fundamental skills necessary for this work.
