“Human trafficking involves the use of force, fraud, or coercion to obtain some type of labor or commercial sex act.” (US Dept. of Homeland Security) Although it’s difficult to determine the scope of human trafficking worldwide, as many cases go unreported, the International Labour Organization estimates about 40 million victims of human trafficking internationally. 

Human trafficking is a crime that preys on vulnerabilities and although it cuts across age, ethnicity, race and socioeconomic status, Black girls have an increased vulnerability to sexual exploitation as a result of racism and systematic oppression.

We each have a shared responsibility to combat human trafficking. In order to prevent trafficking and work to create environments for survivors to thrive, we must address the root causes of trafficking.

This workshop will define human trafficking, understand its prevalence and explore the racial roots that contribute to the sexualization of Black girls. Participants will recognize how systematic oppression increases vulnerability to the push/pull factors of human trafficking and evaluate the use of trauma and survivor informed approaches in order to avoid re-traumatization and build resilience.    

 

 

        OBJECTIVES

 

Participants will:

1.     Define Human Trafficking and its various forms.

2.     Recognize the role of racism and systemic oppression on vulnerability, victimization, and justice.

3.     Understand the supply and demand of human trafficking and the sexual objectification of girls of color.

4.     Evaluate the re-traumatization of “rescuing.”

5.     Apply a trauma informed lens in recognizing the need for survivor centered, culturally responsive approaches to empowerment and resilience.
