Please Save The Date: Lunch & Learn on Anti-Trafficking, April 25, 2012

The Administration for Children and Families, Region V Chicago, is planning its third “Lunch and Learn” on Anti-Trafficking in Persons on April 25, 2012.  The discussion will revolve around the trafficking of children and how it affects families and communities.  Human trafficking is a modern-day form of slavery. Victims of human trafficking are subjected to force, fraud, or coercion, for the purpose of sexual exploitation or forced labor. Victims are young children, teenagers, men and women.  Invited operating divisions’ staff, providers, and regional community partners will learn that human trafficking is a form of modern-day slavery, widespread throughout the United States.  Basic information on Human Trafficking will be provided along with critical signs to look for, and how to help victims that you may encounter.
