Please join Attorney Alicia R. Kinsman, Director of Victim Services at the International Institute of Connecticut and learn about this timely and all too pervasive topic. This program will educate participants on the fundamentals of human trafficking, its impact on victims’ physical and mental health, strategies for identifying victims, and resources for victims.

This program is free but space is limited. To register call: 203 337-9676 or click here.

The objective of the training is to raise awareness among the general public of human trafficking in Connecticut, teach common indicators of a trafficking situation, and explain what help exists for someone exploited in the sex or labor industry and how to access those resources.

 The training will include one or more video clips, a power point presentation, and a Q & A segment.
