  • Webinar: Who’s in There? Demystifying Incarcerated Survivors of Sexual Assault

    July 18, 2018 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm

    Please join us for this enlightening webinar to learn who we are talking about when we say “incarcerated survivors.” Who are they? Are their needs different from survivors “on the outside?” Do you have concerns about whether or not your advocacy skills will transfer into a corrections setting, to working with male survivors, or to working with survivors who may also have been perpetrators? If so, this is the webinar for you. During this webinar, we will unpack some common misconceptions about people in detention and you will hear from incarcerated survivors and advocates who have worked with them about the power of advocacy in their healing. The webinar will feature speakers Just Detention International (JDI) as well as rape crisis advocates and survivors.

  • Project NO REST 2018 Conference

    August 7, 2018-August 8, 2018 @ 
    New Bern, NC, USA

    Project NO REST 2018 Annual Conference: Awareness to Action: Proactively Confronting Human Trafficking in North Carolina Communities

    Human trafficking is forcing, fooling or frightening others into performing labor or sex acts for profit—and it is happening in North Carolina. Project NO REST is a statewide effort to strengthen and expand the state’s infrastructure to address human trafficking and document how it affects children and young people.  

    Coordinated by the UNC School of Social Work, the goal is to shine a light into the shadow that is human trafficking, reduce the number of people trafficked, and improve the lives of those affected by trafficking. Collaboration among government agencies, community organizations and other stakeholders is vital to accomplishing these goals.  
    This second annual Project NO REST conference will provide information, resources and training to help individuals and communities move from Awareness to Action to confront human trafficking in towns and cities across the state—and do so in victim-centered, trauma-informed ways. Presenters include national experts as well as community groups from across the state. 

    OBJECTIVES
    List key definitions and risk factors involved in human trafficking 
    Articulate the roles, challenges, and benefits of multi-disciplinary teams 
    Describe strategies for improved prevention, outreach, identification, and services for trafficking victims and survivors 
    Discuss the importance of trauma-informed, victim-centered, and culturally appropriate services for persons who have experienced human trafficking 
    List strategies to assess and strengthen community collaborations in response to human trafficking
