We hope that you can join us for this important new anti-trafficking program! Attend this training if you would like to provide pro bono services to survivors of human trafficking, with a special emphasis on immigrant survivors of human trafficking. Many human trafficking survivors have complex and diverse needs that require the knowledge and intersection between multiple legal practices. Experienced anti-trafficking practitioners in the areas of immigration, criminal, civil, and benefits law will share their expertise by providing insight into the myriad issues that arise when working with trafficking survivors, and how these areas of law overlap to provide special protections and remedies to immigrant trafficking survivors.
