Human trafficking is happening every minute around the globe. This issue is modern–day slavery that involves the use of force, fraud, or coercion to obtain some type of labor or commercial sex act. Human trafficking is a hidden crime as victims rarely come forward to seek help because of language barriers, fear of the traffickers and/or fear of law enforcement. The trauma caused by the traffickers can be so great that many may not identify themselves as victims or ask for help. Everyone can play a role in identifying and helping victims of trafficking, especially hospitals.

Register for DCHA's first symposium dedicated to the topic of human trafficking. The symposium will feature keynotes and panels that will discuss the identifiction of victims, hospital protocols, community response and how to compassionately help the victims of this terrible crisis.
