Webinar Description

Worldwide Trafficking in persons is often portrayed as the world’s fastest-growing criminal enterprise, totaling 105 billion dollars in profits!

Each year there are approximately 150,000- 300,000 U.S. children at risk for sex trafficking. Children and teens are lured into the world of sex trafficking through emotional grooming. Many traffickers are skilled in manipulation and gain the trust of minors by providing them with love, affection and even food and shelter.

While an emphasis is typically placed on identification of children already lured into trafficking, this presentation focuses on identifying grooming tactics to help prevent entry into sex trafficking.
