Continued Presence (CP) is a temporary immigration designation provided to individuals identified by law enforcement as trafficking victims who may be potential witnesses. CP allows trafficking victims to lawfully remain in the U.S. temporarily and work during the investigation into the human trafficking-related crimes committed against them and during any civil action under 18 U.S.C. § 1595 filed by the victims against their traffickers.

This webinar will focus on:

  • What Continued Presence is and who is eligible to make a request.
  • Who to contact to make a Continued Presence request.
  • The CCHT Victim-Centered Approach.
  • Continued Presence applications in support of civil action.

Registration for this webinar is required. If you have any questions or difficulty registering, please contact [email protected]. To learn more about the Continued Presence program, visit the Victim-Centered Approach section of the Center for Countering Human Trafficking website.
