Reducing Vulnerability to Human Trafficking

Feb 6, 2022    Dr. Brenda Navarrete

While anyone can become a victim of human trafficking, traffickers often target victims with certain vulnerabilities. Trafficking is often the result of years, sometimes generations of vulnerabilities that have gone unnoticed and unaddressed. Traffickers exploit these vulnerabilities by luring victims with false promises of a better life, a relationship, or a better job opportunity. This workshop will discuss some of the individual, interpersonal, community, and societal vulnerabilities that make someone more susceptible to human trafficking. We will identify things we can all do to reduce vulnerability in our loved ones and in our communities in order to help prevent this problem before it begins.
