New Trauma Informed Human Trafficking Certificate

New Trauma Informed Human Trafficking Certificate

Human trafficking is modern day slavery, a human rights injustice that subjugates 4.5 million individuals who are trafficked worldwide in the sex industry, 98 percent of them are women and girls. Although research and literature magnifies the plight and voices of women and girls, the voices and experiences of men and boys are often not documented, leaving boys and men’s experiences inaudible — the invisible sub population. As such, we can clearly deduce that this is a serious public health, human rights, and social injustice issue impacting all members of society; thereby, enlisting all members of society to join together in standing against this criminal network that profits from the most disenfranchised in our communities.
