  • Webinar

Join TAASA and their colleagues from The Women’s Center of Tarrant County.

Webinar Description:

Human trafficking has received a lot of attention in the past few years, and much effort has been made to reduce the incidence of human trafficking. This session will look deeper into the primary prevention of trafficking, rather than risk reduction strategies or interventions. It will explore different models of trafficking response. It will discuss issues at each level of the socioecological model that allows human trafficking to thrive. Finally, it will examine policy reform as a potential human trafficking prevention strategy.
