Partnering with hotels, airports, and churches can offer opportunities for anti-human trafficking task forces to identify and provide help for human trafficking victims, while fostering community engagement. On Thursday, August 17, at 2:00 p.m., eastern time, the IACP is hosting a 90-minute webinar with ICF and the Bay Area Anti-Trafficking Coalition’s Airport Initiative.

This webinar, supported by the U.S. Department of Justice, Office for Victims of Crime, will offer participants a roadmap for how to engage these community partners, the different roles they can play, and how to ensure a consistent response in your community by partnering with them.

This webinar is a part of IACP/OVC’s Enhanced Collaborative Model Task Force Training Catalog.

After this webinar, participants will be better able to:

  • Understand the value of community partners;
  • Describe the two types of community partners;
  • List two “asks” of community partners; and -Initiate or build robust community partnerships.
