This training, known as "Human Trafficking in Our Community", is an overview of the dynamics of human trafficking and commercial
sexual exploitation that is happening in our own backyards. Participants will learn how to become an ally in the fight
against human trafficking through knowledge and a number of active ways YOU can make a difference.

If you care about young people in our communities, this opportunity to learn more is for you!

Community members will leave this training:

  * Understanding the definitions and impacts of human trafficking
* Recognizing the signs and knowing how to respond to potential trafficking
* Understanding Washington Trafficking Prevention's work and how each one of us can do something to end exploitation!

This 1-1/2 hour training is a first step in equipping you to prevent and end human trafficking in your community.
