Recent Webinar: Human Trafficking: Online SafetyThe year 2020 marks the 20th anniversary of the passage of the Trafficking Victims Protection Act.  In recognition of this significant milestone, the U.S. Department of Education is conducting a webinar series to address the growing response of America's schools to child trafficking.  In light of current realities related to the COVID-19 pandemic and the resultant increase in young people’s online exposure, this event will feature anti-trafficking strategies in the online space to prevent human trafficking and child labor exploitation. This event is designed to provide building-level administrators, teachers, and specialized instructional support personnel with strategies, rooted in trauma-informed and survivor-centered approaches, for preventing students from falling prey to trafficking activity.  Register here.  Be sure to also check out a recording of the first webinar Identifying and Supporting Students Affected by Human Trafficking.
