    Human trafficking (the exploitation of an individual through force, fraud, or coercion for profit) often goes unrecognized, but could be detected in our daily work lives. Do you know how to respond if you believe someone that you encounter at work is being trafficked or previously experienced labor or sex trafficking?
    Join the Multifaith Coalition to Address Human Trafficking through the Lens of Compassion for an afternoon training and strategy session on how to detect and respond to human trafficking in your occupation. We will have experts from various industries (such as those listed above) who can answer your questions and provide resources. Clock hours available for Catholic Archdiocese of Seattle School teachers.

    Video Series: The Life Story
    The Life Story: Moments of Change shines a light on the realities of women in the sex trade, elevates their voices and experiences and highlights opportunity for change—for all girls and all women—at different moments throughout a lifetime.

    The trajectories of girls and women in the Life are often marked by many on-ramps into exploitation—poverty, violence, discrimination and system failure—and few exit ramps. The Life Story focuses on closing those on-ramps and building many more exit ramps. This is a space to explore those solutions, particularly those which aim for larger system change.

    This material is designed to be used by any individual or organization who sees the same potential. It is meant to inform and inspire those who work across the intersections of education, housing, public health, mental health and addiction services, economic and racial justice, and many other areas.

    This issue isn’t intractable, but it is often misunderstood. We hope this work can help change that. https://thelifestory.org/
