[FosterEd] Understanding Human Trafficking

April 10 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm


Human trafficking can seem like an issue that happens in distant countries, but both sex and labor trafficking happen in Minnesota every day. Young people are at increased risk of being trafficked, making it crucial that the adults in their lives understand the issue. Learn about human trafficking, how it happens, signs to watch for, and what to do if you suspect a youth is experiencing sex or labor trafficking. The Advocates for Human Rights works to address human trafficking; learn more about The Advocates for Human Rights work and how you can help.

Madeline Lohman is the Associate Program Director for Training and Technical Assistance with The Advocates for Human Rights. She develops training resources on core Advocates issue areas, including human rights advocacy for social justice organizations, international monitoring and reporting, and guidance for pro bono volunteers.

Madeline is also one of the Advocates experts on labor trafficking and exploitation. She has developed protocols for law enforcement and for community organizations to identify and respond to labor trafficking, conducted fact-finding on labor trafficking in Minnesota, and trained government officials, labor organizations, service providers, and law enforcement officials on labor trafficking.
