About The Event

THE ACADEMY IS EXCITED TO ANNOUNCE THE RETURN OF AFN BOARD MEMBER DEBRA S. HOLBROOK FOR THIS SPECIAL AFN WEBINAR ON MAY 26, 2021 AT 12:00 PM EST!  

As communities begin to understand the scope of both sex and labor trafficking, they are struggling with how to create a response that embraces one central point of care.  As Baltimore City began to embark on this joint venture in creating a human trafficking Program built on “warm hand offs”, a model response was developed with participation from a host of Federal, State and Local stakeholders.  

This presentation provides an overview of what human trafficking looks like and how to create a community collaborative.  The audience will also understand the Blue Dot Initiative of Baltimore City and evaluate the success of this program in responding to the needs of victims, hospitals, government and community partners.  

This Webinar is open to all AFN Members! Looking forward to seeing you there!

Don't miss your opportunity to:

  • Understand the definitions and scope of sex and labor trafficking in the US.
  • Understand the Blue Dot Initiative response model in Baltimore City.
  • Discuss and evaluate options for central points of care in their communities.
  • Review methods of screening of victims of trafficking.

IMPORTANT 

You will need to register in advance for this Webinar.  Webinar is scheduled for May 26. 2021 at 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM (EST).  Question and answer session will immediately follow.
