Special Focus: PBS Documentary Film “Trafficked in America”
June 21 from 1 to 3 p.m. at the Kearney Center, 2650 Municipal Way, Tallahassee, FL 32304
Do you understand what human trafficking is exactly? Would you know what to do if you suspected someone was being sex or labor trafficked? Come learn where and how human trafficking occurs, who is vulnerable and what you can do to help at STAC’s monthly training.
This month’s training will feature the PBS documentary film, “Trafficked in America.”
FRONTLINE and the Investigative Reporting Program at U.C. Berkeley tell the story of minors forced to work in the Midwest. The investigation uncovers a criminal network that exploited undocumented minors, companies that profited from forced labor and the government’s role. Attendees will watch the film and participate in a discussion of issues raised in it and how this could be happening right here in North Florida.
These sessions, from 1 to 3 p.m. on the third Friday of every month, also offer information about the latest regional trends in human trafficking and how you can identify, report and prevent trafficking. A guest speaker will also cover a specialized topic, for example: human trafficking and youth, what businesses can do and the civil/legal needs of survivors.
