At the Intersection: Domestic Violence & Human Trafficking (Part 1 & Part 2)
This session offers theoretical and practical framings of how domestic violence and human trafficking intersect. The session facilitators will offer definitions, indicators, and case examples for how domestic violence and human trafficking intersect. The session will grapple with case examples regarding how someone sex trafficked into sexual economies and intimate partnership is deeply defined by power and control. The facilitators will disentangle when domestic servitude, an example of labor trafficking, intersects with domestic violence and demystify the assumptions surrounding human trafficking. Practical tools will be offered for service providers and advocates through theory and practices that center on a human rights and trauma-informed care approach to identify, serve and work in partnership to address human trafficking and intimate partner violence in our community. This is Part 2 of a 2 part presentation – attendance at both sessions is advised.
9AM – 12:15PM
