Children Migrating Alone & The Trafficking Victims Protection Act

Wednesday, October 29, 2014; 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM
There is no charge for this program; please RSVP here.

In light of the recent influx of unaccompanied children arriving at our southern border, the City Bar Justice Center's Immigrant Women and Children Project will host a panel discussion on the intersections of unaccompanied youth and human trafficking. While some have looked to the Trafficking Victims Protection Act as a source of the recent surge in the migration of children, others counter that the law is in place to enhance their protection. The panelists will discuss their work with unaccompanied youth and victims of human trafficking, best practices for screening, and recent developments. Panelists will include:
