Webinar - Protecting the Victims of Domestic Minor Sex Trafficking

Efforts to protect children identified as victims of domestic sex trafficking have gained momentum as a number of states have developed protective legislation often referred to as “Safe Harbor” laws, which aim to ensure identified youth are treated as victims not offenders. Hosted by the Justice Clearinghouse, this webinar will present statutory, policy-based, and practice-oriented approaches to improving the response to child sex trafficking victims.
