Standing Tall: A Vision of Freedom in Times of Change
2018 Freedom Network USA Conference Announced!
The 16th Annual Freedom Network USA Human Trafficking Conference will be held on April 4 – 5, 2018 in Denver, Colorado!
In an era of heightened enforcement, funding cuts for social programming, and national rhetoric that promotes fear, vulnerable communities are under intensifying stress in the US and around the world. Human traffickers remain effective at capitalizing on vulnerabilities and exploiting victims for financial gain. Our experience has shown us that collaborative efforts to address human trafficking work. Lawmakers and agency staff continue to work across the aisle, and with the field, on innovative programs that support survivors. New training and outreach programs have increased identification, helping more survivors access services and obtain legal status. Perhaps most importantly, survivors have organized and pushed the field to incorporate services and prevention efforts that are informed by their collective experiences.
As we have for nearly two decades, Freedom Network USA remains committed to fighting for effective policies, programs, and positions that work to protect everyone from exploitation and abuse. Join FNUSA at the 16th Annual Freedom Network USA Conference. Speak with experts from around the country, learn new skills, be inspired by ideas, and walk away connected, informed, and better equipped to address the issue of human trafficking in your community.
Reflecting on the 15th Annual FNUSA Conference
“Redefining Justice: Envisioning New Approaches in Anti-Trafficking Work,” the 15th Annual Freedom Network USA Human Trafficking Conference, used a social justice lens to imagine what justice looks like in the anti-trafficking movement. FNUSA welcomed a record-breaking 400 social service providers, attorneys, prosecutors, survivors, law enforcement and government officials who discussed ways to incorporate the voices of survivors in the criminal justice process, while exploring alternative approaches. We hope attendees left feeling inspired and eager to implement new ideas in their work on the ground. Thank you to all the attendees, support staff, FNUSA members, presenters and survivors who contributed to the event.
