Freedom Network USA Conference
Join us virtually or live at the Hyatt Regency Miami in Miami, FL on March 16-17th, 2022.
Anti-trafficking work is entering a new era. In the past two years, the global pandemic and renewed calls for racial justice forced advocates out of their comfort zones to meet the needs of survivors. These lessons and a new administration have brought the future of anti-trafficking work to a tipping point. We have made tremendous progress, but the approach and tools we have used to prevent and address human trafficking have fallen short. We must push beyond the constraints of the past in terms of what we believe human trafficking is, how we support survivors and hold traffickers accountable, and what effective prevention looks like. Join us to commemorate 20 years of progress and to reimagine what is possible in anti-trafficking work ahead. If you have questions about next year’s event, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
