On November 2, 2017, our policy liaison, Jill McLeigh, presented at a congressional briefing, during which a panel of researchers described:
- Conditions that increase a person’s vulnerability to trafficking victimization
- 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).
- 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.
