Town Hall 2017
Seattle Town Hall - January 24, 2017
Program: 7:00pm – 8:45pm
Research suggests that boys and young men may be trafficked at the same rate as girls and young women, yet we have all too often failed to recognize them for the victims that they are. But why?
- Why has the gender of youth shaped our recognition and view of their exploitation?
- How can we better identify and appropriately serve male victims?
Join Stolen Youth in learning from experts the answers to these and other important questions. We hope that you will walk away feeling empowered to join our fight to eradicate the commercial sexual exploitation of all children and youth.
Town Hall 2016 Recap
Thank you to everyone who joined us last month for our Town Hall event: What If We Could Prevent Trafficking Before It Happens? In our third year hosting this important event, we were proud to bring the community together to learn about sex trafficking locally, and the groundbreaking work being done to stop it in Seattle.
This year we specifically focused on prevention programs, and hosted a panel whose members work in the field on programs that educate a broad range of groups on how to prevent sex trafficking. From high school education, to corporate training, to buyer education, our panel spoke of innovative programs and the impact they are having in many different areas in our city and state.
