At the 2011 Leadership Conference in Sacramento, Calif., CALCASA will host a variety of workshops dedicated to Intervention/Advocacy for advocates working with survivors of sexual violence. Among those workshops is From Local to Global: Working With Human Trafficking Survivors.
Human trafficking is a form of modern-day slavery where people profit from the control and exploitation of others.  Often, Sexual Assault Programs and Rape Crisis Centers become a point of first contact for trafficking survivors, because of the sexual exploitation of victims.  This institute will focus on helping participants understand how to respond to trafficking survivors and will highlight some of the innovative work that CALCASA members are doing to in this field.  This panel format will allow institute participants to get a broad understanding of the best practices in response and allow an opportunity to engage with agencies who are doing this work.
Presenters: Perla Flores, Kirsten Kleymann & Patrick Mims
