This interactive webinar will provide an overview and legal definition of domestic child sex trafficking and delineate how girls are often criminalized for experiencing sexual violence, including analysis of the correlation between domestic child sex trafficking and juvenile justice involvement. We will explore racial and gender disparities among victims, risk factors, and the criminalization of trauma and abuse. We will also address how being a trafficking survivor impacts a girl pre- and post-justice involvement and identify strategies to reduce reliance on the justice system as a response to girls’ trauma.

Additionally, this webinar will highlight how federal, state, and local agencies are addressing the needs of victims of child sex trafficking through advocacy partnerships and innovative policies and practices. While all 50 states and the District of Columbia have enacted anti-trafficking laws, few state agencies have developed specific child sex trafficking policies or require specialized training to help professionals across sectors to identify and respond to the complex needs of child sex trafficking survivors. This workshop provides an opportunity for participants to learn about key anti-trafficking laws as well as local efforts to address the needs of child sex trafficking victims through cross system, trauma-informed approaches to identify, respond to, provide service for, and to prevent the re-victimization of child sex trafficking victims.
