Investigating Human Trafficking in North Carolina
Panelists: UNC Public Policy Capstone Students - Jordanne Arace, Grace Berry, Elizabeth Norris, Michelle Breit, Sophia Desai
Moderator: Danie Watson-Goetz, WomenNC Executive Director
Call to Action: What’s something you want the audience to know they can do to help?
- Educate yourself on the prevalence of human trafficking in the area that you live in. What risk factors make your hometown a target of human trafficking? Be aware!
- Students grades K-12 are among the highest-risk populations. Educate yourself as well as those around you, specifically those working within the school system, as all entities involved within a school community have the potential to advocate for child victims of human trafficking.
- Remain updated on the nuanced federal and state statutes that currently serve to address human trafficking.
- Understand that the severity of human trafficking requires all instances of violence, even those starting at the elementary level, to be considered paramount in advocacy efforts.
