Human Trafficking: It’s Not What You Think – Understanding Sex Trafficking Training

August 15 @ 7:00 pm


“Understanding and Addressing Sex Trafficking in Our Community” is an Oregon-specific Trafficking 101 training to comprehend the issue of human trafficking better.

Through building empathy for the survivors of Sex and Labor trafficking, we can find solutions in our roles as Jackson County citizens to address the issue of trafficking in our community. This 90-minute discussion-based training is designed for audience members to be included in learning about this widely complex issue.

Within the training, audience members will hear stories from survivors of sex trafficking from the organization “The Life Story.” They will also hear a story from a local survivor of sex trafficking.
I look forward to meeting you all and thank you for taking the first step in addressing sex trafficking in our community: EDUCATION!

Note: Due to a travel conflict, the originally scheduled presenter, Lauren Trantham, selected her colleague Rosa Van Gordon to present on this topic.

Rosa Van Gordon is a trafficking confidential advocate with Community Works, with a background in advocating for children and their families who have been abused. Through coordination of the Jackson County Coalition Against Sex Trafficking Task Force, Rosa strives to build a community that is educated on what trafficking looks like, empathetic for the survivors of trafficking, and inspired to get involved in the anti-trafficking movement.
