On November 2, 2017, our policy liaison, Jill McLeigh, presented at a congressional briefing, during which a panel of researchers described:

  1. Conditions that increase a person’s vulnerability to trafficking victimization
  2. Community-based strategies that can be tailored to local needs by task forces and key stakeholders (such as law enforcement, faith-based organizations, and nonprofits).
  3. Strategies that have the potential to reduce individual risk of victimization.

Additionally, the briefing provided a survivor’s perspective on how her victimization could have been prevented.
