Anti-Human Trafficking Committee

project start date: April 2018

The Human Trafficking committee formed in early 2018 to examine and respond to human trafficking in Grey and Bruce counties. Members represent organizations working to prevent and respond to human trafficking as well as interested community members and people with lived experience. With a focus on sex trafficking, the committee is currently mapping assets, gathering resources, and collecting the experiences of local agencies and survivors. Our goal is to raise awareness of the issue in ways that best address human trafficking and support survivors in our communities. The committee is also compiling resources to support a more cohesive community response.

Listen below to hear the November 24, 2020 edition of the Open Line radio show featuring a discussion about human trafficking and the community forum.

 

Community Forum
We hosted two free virtual events to wrap up our two-year anti-human trafficking work  in November 2020. The virtual forum featured guest speakers Kaitlin Bick and Karly Church who shared their presentation about the realities of human trafficking and the importance of using a trauma informed approach when supporting survivors. They spoke about their own lived experiences and their efforts to help support other survivors in their journey towards healing and developing resiliency.  We recommend that kids as folks as young as 12 watch the presentation along with supportive adults.
