Event Dates

Jane Anderson, Senior Attorney Advisor with AEquitas, will facilitate a conversation with Miiko Anderson, AEquitas’ newest Attorney Advisor and a former Fresno County (California) prosecutor with extensive experience prosecuting human trafficking cases. Jane and Miiko will discuss various strategies that can enhance prosecutions where judges may not have experience with cases involving sex or labor trafficking and where jurors may have misconceptions or misunderstandings about the reality of what human trafficking looks like in their community.

This presentation will enhance your ability to—

  • identify various ways to educate judges and jurors,
  • analyze how experts can enhance investigations and prosecutions, and
  • effectively present expert testimony.

This webinar is the first of a podcast-style webinar series, hosted by the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) and AEquitas, that will feature conversations with various prosecutors discussing foundational elements of trauma-informed human trafficking prosecutions.

This webinar is a part of IACP/OVC’s anti-human trafficking task force training catalog. If you have any questions or have not received confirmation of your registration within 3 business days of your submission, please contact IACP’s Anti-Human Trafficking Training and Technical Assistance team at [email protected].
