Did you know? Over 20 million people are trafficked around the world at any moment in time. Southern Oregon is a hotspot in the nation for labor and sex trafficking. How it happens might surprise you. Less than 5% of trafficking cases in the United States result from kidnapping or abductions.

Human trafficking extends beyond sexual exploitation to labor trafficking in the illegal cannabis operations in Southern Oregon, where migrant workers are treated as slaves, according to a recent ABC News story.

This two-day educational and networking summit is for anyone interested in gaining a better understanding of the realities of human trafficking in our region.

  •    Over 20 million people are trafficked around the world at any moment in time.
  •    Less than 5% of trafficking cases in the United States result from kidnapping or abductions.
  •   Southern Oregon is a major hotspot in the nation. It’s a crisis happening every day in our communities.

From start to finish, this event brings together experts, advocates, and community members to discuss strategies for combating human trafficking and supporting survivors. Learn tools and skills to identify what trafficking looks like, and discover surprising solutions to help keep our communities safe.

“By coming together as a community, we can disrupt the cycle of human trafficking and create a safer, more just society for all. This unique event is critical in raising awareness and mobilizing action to address this troubling meta-issue in our society.” – Lauren Trantham, Event Co-Producer
