Integration Challenges: All Hands on Deck to End Human Trafficking in Southwest Florida

January 11, 2022 | 9:00 am - 3:30 pm

On January 11, 2022, National Human Trafficking Awareness Day, please join us in Fort Myers, Florida, for an intensive one-day training against human trafficking: Integration Challenges: All Hands on Deck to End Human Trafficking in Southwest Florida.

Three years after Breaking Chains and Breaking Cycles: The Intersection of Human Trafficking and the Opioid Crisis, the John J. Brunetti Human Trafficking Academy of St. Thomas University College of Law is proud to once again partner with A Voice in the Wilderness Empowerment Center on a training that explores the next frontier of eradicating human trafficking in southwest Florida and beyond.

Great strides have been made against human trafficking in southwest Florida, but more work remains – requiring the collaboration, compassion, and multidisciplinary efforts of the entire community to succeed.  This year’s training aims to build on past progress and empower the community with knowledge and resolve as it continues to strengthen public-private partnerships and work towards ending human trafficking in all its forms.  In addition to opportunities to network with other organization working against human trafficking, sessions will be presented by leading experts in the field as follows:

  • Session 1: Perspectives in Law: Trafficking in Persons as a Crime

  • Session 2: Assessing Vulnerability and Trauma in Human Trafficking: Case Study Opioids

  • Session 3: Labor Trafficking: A Collaborative Response to Immigration Issues of Victims and Survivors

  • Session 4: Public-Private Partnerships: A Multidisciplinary Imperative to Combat Human Trafficking

This training is free and open to the public with registration.  This training is accredited for 5.5 Continuing Legal Education (CLE) credits from The Florida Bar.  This event is not available virtually.  A continental breakfast and lunch will be provided.  Space is limited.
