Opportunities and Resources
Addressing the Housing Need: Sustaining Critical Services for Victims of Human Trafficking during a Remote Work Environment
Hosted by: National Center for Victims of Crime
Housing is an essential need for stability and to achieve one’s full potential. Finding adequate and appropriate emergency, transitional, and long-term housing for victims of human trafficking is often the biggest service-related challenge support organizations face. On February 24, 2021, three experts offered insight and answered participant questions on this topic during a live Ask an Expert webinar.
Hosted by: The Human Trafficking Legal Center
Anti-trafficking organizations work to secure physical and emotional safety for the survivors they serve. But these organizations face challenges in instituting workplace policies that promote psychological safety for the survivors they employ. More and more, advocates seek to place survivors’ lived experiences and voices at the center of the anti-trafficking movement. As survivor inclusion initiatives become more widespread in the movement, it is important to explore how organizations can create an environment for survivor leaders to thrive in the workplace. This webinar is a candid discussion about psychological safety for survivors in the workplace.
Hosted by: Freedom Network USA
The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has extended the national eviction moratorium to July 30th, 2021.
