Domestic and sexual violence agencies have long been acknowledged as a vital pathway to support survivors of human trafficking. Therefore, requests for increased training on how to identify and meet the needs of these survivors are ongoing. With increased homelessness, unemployment, and overall financial strain, the COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated existing vulnerabilities, including economic and social inequalities at the root of human trafficking, and increased susceptibility to trafficking and exploitation. Now more than ever, Family Justice Centers need to equip themselves with the knowledge and awareness to support survivors of human trafficking as we continue to navigate the “new normal” of service delivery. Towards that end, this webinar aims to discuss the surge in victimizations that have occurred during COVID-19 and express urgency to respond proactively, as victimizations will continue to increase in the aftershocks of COVID-19.
