END Human Trafficking in Your Backyard
How to Create an Effective Community Response to Human Trafficking
Human Trafficking is one of the largest human rights issues of our generation. With over 20.9 million victims worldwide netting traffickers $150 billion annually, one could easily feel overwhelmed by the scope of the problem. Especially when we realize it is happening in nearly every corner of the world, including our own communities.
Indeed, it thrives in any place with a vulnerable population, a viable demand, and an uninformed community. Is this you?
If you've found this course, you are probably already aware that the problem has also come to your city. Perhaps you're in the field and have received training. Maybe you've seen a documentary or read a book and want to do more. Some of you may be actively involved in a faith community, campus group, or service club and want to effectively lead your people to action. You're in the right place.
I've spent the last five years building and leading a community response to human trafficking in Northern Colorado. Our region has created multiple task forces, working groups, trainings and awareness strategies to address the problem. And, while I cannot say we have eradicated human trafficking, we have paved the way for you.
I hold a MA in International Community Development and founded A Face to Reframe, a nonprofit preventing human trafficking in local communities through arts, training, and community building. I regularly train students, service providers, and community members on the reality of this issue locally and have been on podcasts, news shows, and newspapers speaking about the local problem. It is my desire to use all that I've learned in my community so that leaders across the nation can launch similar movements.
Who is this course for?
This course is for anyone looking to activate their community toward action around this issue – whether you have a position or not, whether you live in a large city or a small town, whether you have data to prove it’s a problem. This course will walk you through all the necessary steps to mobilize your people to action.
It is designed by a community leader. Unlike government tutorials, pdfs, and videos (all of which are helpful!), this course is taught by a real person who has walked through the entire process in a small town (150,000) like you.
This course includes:
4 Video Lessons totaling 100 minutes of teaching
25 pages of worksheets for each session so that you and your group can work through the process at your own pace
