Andrea Lampert, J.D.: Human Trafficking: Myths and Realities

There are many myths surrounding human trafficking, such as that victims fit a certain profile. Or that traffickers target victims they don't know. Many people also think that people being trafficked are physically unable to leave and are held against their will and/or locked up - that otherwise they could "just leave if they really wanted to." 

In this presentation, you will learn:

  • What human trafficking looks like

  • How and where it happens

  • Who are the most vulnerable victims and why

  • Ways to get involved to combat this horrendous crime

  • How to get additional resources

Don’t miss this opportunity to learn more about human trafficking in our own backyard and how you can get involved to fight it.
