2020 Virtual Conference

Thank you to all who joined us for our virtual conference. While we wish we could all be together as in past years, our staff was thankful to have to opportunity to connect to other anti-trafficking professionals during these uncertain times.

Continuing education certificates will go out for Continuing Legal Education (CLE) credits by April 17th. Eleven CLEs are available through the Florida State Bar Association. Many states offer reciprocity for programs approved in other states. Attorneys should check guidelines for their state. We are still pursuing Continuing Education Units (CEU) through the National Association of Social Workers. We will make an announcement when/if these are approved. Attendees must complete the following form to get credit.

All webinars were recorded and participants should have access to them by Monday, March 30th. Recordings are available with the rest of the session materials via the link that was sent to all participants.

We will be scheduling up to six additional webinars over the next three months. Attendees will receive an email notification and they will be listed below on this website.

Upcoming Webinars for 2020 Virtual Conference

August 13th, 2020 at 1:00 PM – 2:30 PM EST

Transitional Age Youth and Their Rights as Victims in Court

Speakers: Suamhirs Piraino-Guzman, King County Department of Behavioral Health and Rose Mukhar, Justice At Last

A pioneer human rights lawyer and a male survivor of trafficking will discuss crime victim rights history
in Federal Courts, California, and Florida State Courts. This interactive workshop will discuss two case
examples of how advocates, case managers, and other support staff can advocate to ensure a victim’s
rights are upheld in court. In contrast, during this workshop, we will discuss one California based case
where the victim’s rights were violated and how that impacted the case and the survivor.
