Trafficking in the North
February 22, 2021 – Human Trafficking Awareness Day
Join Amelia Rising on Human Trafficking Awareness Day as we host Kathleen Jodouin, Executive Director of Victim Services Nipissing District and founding member of the Nipissing Human Trafficking Knowledge Network (NHKTN).
Kathleen will be speaking from a critical anti-trafficking lens and presenting findings from the Northeastern Ontario Research Alliance on Human Trafficking (NORAHT). Kathleen will address the importance of empowerment and agency for survivors, why it is important to make a clear distancing between sex trafficking vs. sex work, and why rescue narratives are harmful.
