Human Trafficking Webinar Series - Supporting Students and Schools Through a Human Trafficking Report
January 31, 2024
National Center on Safe Supportive Learning Environments
This webinar will start with an overview of what steps K-12 educators and personnel may take to report trafficking when they suspect or have been informed a student is being trafficked. Experts from the federal and state level will discuss the multiple mechanisms involved in reporting trafficking for both states with mandated reporting and those without. Because this is a difficult process, practitioners working in schools will discuss best practices for both supporting those reporting trafficking and the student(s) involved. And, since educators see and speak with students day in and day out, an expert with lived experience will provide important context on how educators can become safe, approachable adults for students to feel comfortable in confiding what is happening in their lives and then able to report suspected trafficking.
