The Invisible Population: Human Trafficking in Iowa - Des Moines

from 75.00

(This is an In-Person course. For the online version of The Invisible Population: Human Trafficking in Iowa, click here. For In-Person classes, a lunch will be provided.)

Course description: The city of Des Moines has been named one of the top 100 human trafficking sites in the United States, with the state as a whole ranking highly in trafficked individuals. Youth are especially susceptible to being trafficked because of their lack of awareness of what human trafficking is. The likelihood of being trafficked increases if that individual is homeless or part of the LGBTQ community.

This course will explore what human trafficking is, who is vulnerable to being trafficked, and why trafficking humans has become such a problem globally. Research shows that education on the topic is fundamental to helping solve the problem, both for those in the education field, but also for students themselves.
