You will not want to miss a minute of the task force’s free 15th Annual Human Trafficking Awareness Event, "And Justice for All." Over these years, the laws protecting trafficking survivors and punishing perpetrators have changed significantly.The day will begin with Human Trafficking in Colorado by Kara Napolitano, Research and Training Manager at the Laboratory to Combat Human Trafficking (LCHT) who has delivered anti-trafficking training to thousands in professional groups and diverse community audiences across Colorado. Jennisue Jessen, human trafficking survivor, NGO founder, and member of the US Advisory Council on Human Trafficking, and Christian Gardner-Wood, chair of the Colorado Human Trafficking Council and a Chief Deputy District Attorney for the Boulder County District Attorney’s Office will examine progress made over the past decade and a half, and laws and policies needed in the future. Local law enforcement efforts will be addressed by Sgt. Alan Van’t Land, supervisor of the Metro Vice Unit, Colorado Springs Police Department (CSPD).
The Task Force hosts this free awareness event annually as a way to fulfill our mission to bring awareness and action to our community. The symposium brings together expert speakers to educate and engage our community on various challenging topics in the anti-trafficking movement.
