Human Trafficking Webinar Series - Preventing and Intervening in the Labor Trafficking of Students
On behalf of the U.S. Department of Education, Office of Elementary and Secondary Education’s Office of Safe and Supportive Schools, the National Center on Safe Supportive Learning Environments (NCSSLE) invites you to join the next webinar in this series, Preventing and Intervening in the Labor Trafficking of Students, scheduled for Wednesday, August 17, 2022 from 3:00-4:15pm ET/2:00-3:15pm CT/1:00-2:15pm MT/12:00-1:15pm PT.

In the United States, the primary job of school-aged young people is that of student, but this is not the case for all our young people. In 2021, the International Labor Organization and the United Nations Children’s Fund estimated that global child labor, including child labor trafficking, rose from 152 million in 2016 to 160 million children in 2020 (International Labour Organization and United Nations Children’s Fund, 2021). Child labor trafficking doesn’t just happen in other countries, it also takes place here in the United States. Students who are forced to work long hours, often before they can complete schoolwork, or in dangerous jobs are less equipped to achieve in school given the trauma of their forced labor. In this webinar, we will explore what labor trafficking looks like in the United States and talk to subject matter experts, individuals with lived experience, and practitioners about how you can support students who are involved in labor trafficking.

This webinar will be recorded and posted to the event page a day after the event. The event page link is here: https://safesupportivelearning.ed.gov/events/webinar/human-trafficking-webinar-series-preventing-and-intervening-labor-trafficking
