We conclude Human Trafficking Awareness Month with our Sixth Annual Collaborative Multidisciplinary Anti-Trafficking Response Conference - Context Matters: Confronting a Culture of Exploitation.  

Like past years, the conference will go beyond talk of "rescue" and "Human Trafficking 101," to discussing how we all can work to create intentional, long-lasting change among those who are at-risk of or subjugated to labor and sex trafficking and other types of violence. We are intentionally broadening the focus this year to provide attendees with an understanding of the various "-isms" and cultural contributions that create opportunity for abuse, exploitation, and trafficking to occur. We will be challenged to examine the contexts in which we operate and to stand up to toxic culture. We have brought together a diverse group of experts in various fields who stood up to abuse, power, and privilege in their own lives and workplaces.
