Identifying Survivors of Trafficking and Assessing Culpability

Determining whether a person is a survivor of trafficking based on the charges with which they have been charged simply doesn’t work. In a recent survey by the National Survivor Network, 60% of survivors of human trafficking reported being arrested for a crime other than prostitution. Survivors of human trafficking can be arrested for a host of charges that they were forced or coerced into committing. This presentation is designed to help attorneys improve identification of survivors of  trafficking, assess culpability, and ensure that survivors are not inappropriately punished for or convicted of crimes that were the result of their trafficking.

                                                                                                                                                                 

In this training, you will learn:

  • What the research says about identifying survivors of human trafficking via screening tools and self-identification.
  • Who should be screening for trafficking, and how they can build trust.
  • The realities of the victim/offender overlap and how to assess culpability.

Presenters:

  • Jane Anderson, Attorney Advisor with AEquitas
  • Megan Lundstrom, Co-Founder, The Avery Center for Research & Services
  • Colleen Owens, Founder/CEO, The Why
