CCHR will host a training session aimed at helping individuals and businesses identify signs of human trafficking. The training program, an initiative of the Indiana Attorney General’s office, is designed to enhance the ability to identify victims of human and sexual trafficking, and provide resources to assist victims when identified.
According to statistics from the Indiana Attorney general’s office, approximately 16,000 men, women and children are trafficked into the United States and 200,000 children are victims of commercial sexual trafficking each year.
The Center for Civil & Human Rights has formed a working group to study anti-human trafficking initiatives in the Notre Dame/Saint Mary’s College communities. The upcoming training session is an outcome of that collaborative effort. If you or your campus organization are interested in attending the training session, or to join the Trafficking Study Group listserv, send an email to Kevin Fye at CCHR at Kevin.E.Fye.firstname.lastname@example.org.
