Tribal communities, like all other communities, can be impacted by sex trafficking. Victims of sex trafficking frequently suffer horrific abuse for prolonged periods of time with devastating emotional and physical effects. What complicates the response to these offenses in tribal communities is the unique jurisdictional structure in Indian country and the potential for multiple jurisdictions to work a criminal case or provide services to the victims. This webinar will cover Indian country criminal jurisdiction, federal sex trafficking, and sexual abuse laws, tribal responses to sex trafficking, victims’ rights and services available for sex trafficking victims and related emerging issues in tribal communities.
