Honoring Black Voices in the Anti-Trafficking Movement

Event Dates

Each year, February is celebrated as “Black History Month” to reflect on and appreciate the contributions that African Americans and those of the African diaspora have made in all aspects of our nation’s history, especially in fighting for the human rights of all.

In this event, service providers will hear from survivors of labor trafficking as they engage in a meaningful conversation on why the voices of Black survivors of trafficking are needed; the barriers they continue to face as they engage in advocacy, and provide recommendations on ways that the anti-trafficking movement can engage them in a dignifying way.

Additionally, panel members will speak on the importance of culturally responsive services/support, as well as an exploration of the diversity within the Black community, from country of origin, religion, etc., and how that shows up in supporting survivors; also, exploring a strengths-based approach.

Who is this event for?

This event will be informative for all providers and their partners. Visit the Framework website to view more events and resources.
