This session focuses on what is the Public Workforce System and the resources available through its One Stop Career Centers, tips on how to navigate the Public Workforce System and its One Stop Career Centers on behalf of survivors, and special programs and opportunities for minors and foreign nationals through the Public Workforce System.This session focusses on what civil legal remedies are available to human trafficking survivors through state and federal laws, criminal restitution available at the federal level and tips on how to advocate for these types of remedies.This session addresses the unique challenges of creating a safety plan that meets the specific needs of victims in a campus environment, explores how safety planning for sexual violence can be different than safety planning for domestic violence, and discusses strategies for protecting victim privacy and safety.Title IX requires that "upon notice of gender-based harassment that creates a hostile environment, an institution must take immediate action to eliminate the harassment, prevent its recurrence, and address its effects." In order to remedy the hostile environment, campuses should provide safety and remedial measures and the option to participate in their resolution/conduct process.Effective safety plans empower victims and can help them reclaim a sense of safety and security.
Speakers identify lessons learned from the case study that contributed to a successful conviction and to diverse short and long term outcomes for survivors.
Participants gain information on understanding and addressing the barriers to financial stability and economic empowerment faced by victims of human trafficking in a client-driven manner. This session explores the effects of substance use as a coping tool, service barrier, and mechanism of control experienced by survivors of human trafficking.
This session, moderated by, Kristy Cho, OVC Fellow, features Amanda Eckhardt, Director of Programs, Restore NYC and Carolyn Lumpkin, Director of Empowerment Programs, CAST LA. Participants learn practical skills to better provide trauma informed services including advocacy, safety planning, documentation, referral, and program accommodation.
Two federal laws—the Jeanne Clery Act and Title IX—influence campus prevention and response to sexual violence.
