Virtual Conference

Agenda

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.

If you were unable to join but would like access to the materials and future webinars, you can still register below.

Upcoming Webinars

April 24, 2020 at 11:00 AM – 12:30 PM EST

Funding Anti-Trafficking Work: Learning from Grantmakers

Speakers: Sienna Baskin, Director, Anti-Trafficking Fund, NEO Philanthropy and Erin Phelps, Senior Strategic Partnerships Manager, The Freedom Fund

Understanding the world of funding can be daunting. Who are funders, how do they choose what to fund, and what are their goals around human trafficking? In this session, staff from two collaborative funds will share how they approach the issues. The Freedom Fund supports community-based efforts to end modern slavery through programs in eight “hotspots” around the world, as well as through thematic global initiatives and a training and movement-building program for frontline anti-slavery leaders. NEO Philanthropy’s Anti-Trafficking Fund supports the human rights approach to end human trafficking in the US through grant making.

April 29, 2020 at 3:00 PM – 4:30 PM EST

Wage Recovery for Survivors of Labor Trafficking

Speakers: Carole Vigne Legal Aid at Work, Oscar Londoño, Esq. National Day Laborer Organizing Network, Ruth Silver Taube Katherine & George Alexander Community Law Center, and Claudia Navarro WeCount!

Survivors of labor trafficking have most certainly also survived wage theft. For some survivors, the goal of recovering unpaid wages takes primary importance in their fight for justice. The recovery of unpaid wages can be pursued through government administrative processes and investigations and/or civil litigation. Come hear from a survivor, a government investigator, and two workers’ rights attorneys about the strengths and weaknesses of each forum and process, and why prioritizing wage recovery should be front and center in securing justice for trafficking survivors.
