This webinar looks at the family’s and the victim’s perspective on the experience of trafficking.

  • “The importance and role of hope during and after trauma. I’ve always heard hope used in media as either wholly good or wholly bad, but no mention of the physical and emotional effects it has on people. Also, the point that hope doesn’t have to relate to the trauma was really eye-opening. Thank you!’ — Lilly

Most law enforcement operations enforcing prostitution laws are driven by community complaints, and by the role of commercial sex in generating numerous felonies such as aggravated assault, sex and drug trafficking, and negatively impacting neighborhood quality of life. Police in over 1,100 U.S. cities and counties have conducted either street-level or web-based sting operations targeting men buying sex, and courts apply a wide range of criminal and civil penalties to those arrested – including auto seizure, community service, john schools, “dear john” letters, SOAP orders, and driver’s license suspension.
