ACT United 2019 Conference: “See Me.” Human Trafficking in Schools, the ER, and the Community

Chaska Community Center: 1661 Park Ridge Drive, Chaska

Over 80% of human trafficking victims will visit the ER or other medical facilities during their captivity. 36% of trafficked youth are boys. Trafficked children and teens still attend school and are often coerced and threatened into recruiting their classmates. The trafficking and sexual exploitation of children and youth is happening in our communities. Register for this juvenile sex trafficking awareness, response, and prevention training. Highly recommended for educators, nurses, all medical and health services professionals, pastors, and anyone working with children, youth, or with populations identified as marginalized, at risk, or vulnerable. This professional training is open to the public!
