The Vulnerabilities of LGBTQ and Homeless Youth to Human Trafficking and Sexual Exploitation

Hosted by: Office for Victims of Crime Training and Technical Assistance Center

The Office for Victims of Crime Training and Technical Assistance Center will present an Expert Q&A discussion with Dr. Meredith Dank on the Vulnerabilities of LGBTQ and Homeless Youth to Human Trafficking and Sexual Exploitation. This session will address lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer or questioning youth; young men who have sex with men; and young women who have sex with women who are victims of human trafficking, experiencing homelessness, or engaged in survival sex. The session will discuss the delivery of trauma-informed, gender-sensitive and inclusive services, and how service providers can advocate to improve their experiences with law enforcement, the criminal justice system, and the child welfare system.
