Event: Labor Trafficking in the Context of DV & SA

Labor Trafficking in the Context of DV & SA

Tuesday, May 17, 2016 12:00:00 PM MDT – 1:30:00 PM MDT

Forced labor represents a large percentage of global human trafficking incidents annually and yet survivors of labor trafficking are often overlooked in discussions about human trafficking and domestic violence generally. Labor trafficking and domestic violence intersect in various and complex ways.

This webinar will provide an introductory overview of labor trafficking, explore the intersection with domestic violence and sexual assault, and identify protections and services available to domestic violence and sexual assault survivors of labor trafficking.

As a result of this webinar, participants will be better able to:

  1. Define labor trafficking and recognize the importance of multidisciplinary collaborations in assisting labor trafficking survivors.
  2. Recognize similarities and intersections between labor trafficking, sexual assault, and domestic violence.

This is brought to you as part of the Building Collaborative Responses to Trafficked Survivors Project, in partnership with the Office on Violence Against Women and Futures Without Violence. Closed Caption will be provided. This project was supported by Grant No. 2011-TA-AX-K067, awarded by the Office on Violence Against Women, U.S. Department of Justice.
