Learn how to protect teens from human trafficking on Jan. 19

“Human Trafficking Awareness and Prevention: Engaging and Empowering Youth and Families” will be presented at 7 p.m. Jan. 19 by the North Brunswick Public Library.

Teens and young adults (ninth grade and up) and their parents/caregivers (general public is also welcome) can join Diana Starace, coordinator of the RWJ Injury Prevention Program, and Healthcare Committee co-chair of the NJ Coalition Against Human Trafficking; along with Danny Papa, NJ Coalition Against Human Trafficking president, for a virtual presentation intended to educate adolescents how to protect themselves from being exploited by potential traffickers.

During this webinar, presenters will define human trafficking, discuss the “red flags” of a human trafficking victim, present a process of reporting suspected human trafficking in their community, describe what can make adolescents vulnerable to exploitation by traffickers, and explain the concepts of “resilience” and “protective factors”.
