In 2007, the U.S. Senate established Jan. 11 as Human Trafficking Awareness Day. Then in 2010, President Barack Obama issued a proclamation naming January as National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month.
In an effort to get the community to help fight human trafficking in all its forms during National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month, the Community Action and Human Services Department invites all Miami-Dade employees to the Human Trafficking Conference on Jan. 24 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.
Attendees will learn how to identify victims, understand the dynamics of human trafficking and find out about services available for victims.
The conference will be held in the meeting room of the newly-renovated Joseph Caleb Community Center at 5400 NW 22nd Avenue.
If you or someone you know is a victim of human trafficking, we urge you to call the National Human Trafficking Hotline at 1-888-373-7888. You can also text BeFree (233733) or do a live online chat.Register for the conference
