Minnesota has the opportunity to become a national leader in its response to all forms of human trafficking, both sex trafficking and labor trafficking. Minnesota already provides important safeguards to commercially sexually exploited minors, while holding perpetrators accountable. The same commitment toward victim protection and perpetrator accountability can help address serious forms of labor exploitation, including trafficking.
Minnesota legal professionals will play a vital role in preventing and responding to human trafficking. This CLE will provide basic definitions of human trafficking, including labor exploitation and labor trafficking; help legal professionals recognize indicators of potentially trafficked individuals and the risk factors of victims; and describe appropriate responses when working with potential victims of trafficking. This CLE will include a discussion of pro bono opportunities to assist trafficking victims.
1 standard CLE credit will be applied for.
Presenters: Madeline Lohman, Senior Researcher and Theresa Dykoschak, Staff Attorney
