No longer do we have the luxury of deciding whether or not we need to know about human trafficking. Learn how to become a circle of protection around the loved ones in your life by coming to one of our Civilian First Responder (CFR) conferences. Here, you will learn what makes a community susceptible to trafficking, how to identify a victim, how to respond to and report suspicious activity, and more. Discover helpful tips, action plans, and ways to protect the innocent.

This highly sought-after conference brings the U.S. government, Homeland Security, law enforcement officers, human trafficking survivors, and the president of Women At Risk, International into one room to educate communities on this dangerous crime.
