The Greater New Orleans Human Trafficking Task Force is hosting a training featuring national legal services expert Jamie Quient, President and Managing Attorney from Free to Thrive in San Diego. Free to Thrive empowers survivors of human trafficking to be free from exploitation and to thrive by providing them with legal services and connections to other supportive services.
This full day program will train attorneys on the legal needs of human trafficking survivors and the models for serving these needs. The program will then guide participants through trauma-informed lawyering practices, and provide an in-depth learning experience about providing vacatur support to victims and survivors of trafficking. The program will conclude with identifying concrete action items for participants to turn their ideas into ACTION!
This free event is specifically tailored to individuals working in legal services or judicial system in Louisiana: attorneys, pro-bono services, judges, court members, etc. are welcome to join for this training. Additionally, folks who attend should have a base-level understanding of what human trafficking is prior to attending this course.
