Register for Webinar on Forced Marriage and its Intersections with Human Trafficking and Other Forms of Violence

Forced marriage is a significant, yet hidden, problem in the United States. The reasons behind forced marriages are complex and varied. Families may view marriage as a way to protect family honor, preserve culture and community, or ensure their child’s well-being and economic security. Nevertheless, forced marriage can have harmful, lifelong consequences for those at risk.

Register for a webinar hosted by the Office on Trafficking in Persons at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to receive an overview of forced and child marriage in the United States. Participants will build on this foundational knowledge to identify the intersecting forms of violence those at risk endure. The webinar will include a walk-through of high-risk case involving labor trafficking dynamics and potential warning signs and indicators of forced marriage.
