Human Trafficking Conference – December 6th
Human Trafficking is an exploitative, violent, criminal enterprise in Indiana and the Midwest, with some victims trafficked as young as age 7.
The SHARE Group collaborates with IPATH by sponsoring educational training events, like the conference in Michigan City on December 6, to bring awareness to human rights abuse through human trafficking.
The Indiana Protection for Abused and Trafficked Humans (IPATH) task force began its work in 2005 and is now a thriving, state-wide coalition of state agencies, law enforcement, service providers, faith based and community groups collaboratively working to prosecute traffickers, protect and serve victims and prevent future trafficking.
Ongoing training is critical to build awareness to identify, refer, and respond effectively to human trafficking in Indiana. Collaboration is critical for preventing exploitation of vulnerable groups, identifying trafficked persons in our communities, as well as facilitating safe pathways to seek help and receive services. We have come a long way in fighting against human trafficking, but much is still needed in the battling this horrific crime through Prevention, Protection, and Prosecution.
Who should attend: Clergy, Teachers/School Administrators, Teen Advisors/Counselors, Students, Parents, Law Enforcement, and the General Public. Everyone is welcome to attend.
