The 2021 Summit continues the rural human trafficking collaborative with an emphasis on rural prevention, treatment, and community collaboration.
Join us to hear from human trafficking “surthrivors” and how supports and services can be realigned to effectively serve victims, including lessons learned and best practices from Pennsylvania and other states. Strategies for health care providers, health systems, and community-based organizations will be discussed to address this pervasive issue.
The audience for the Summit includes community-based service groups and coalitions, health care providers, health care facility managers and leadership, law enforcement professionals, advocates, and others interested in targeting–and stopping–all human trafficking.
