2/9/2016 - Human Trafficking in South Carolina (1.5 social work contact hours)

Many times, when people hear of human trafficking, they believe that it is something that only happens abroad. However, it is a crime that is alive and well all over South Carolina - and growing. We will discuss basic information about human trafficking, new laws that have been put in place to address human trafficking, victim red flags and identifiers, how agencies can work together on human trafficking cases, and the statewide human trafficking task force.

Participants will:

  1. Learn about human trafficking, as well as the new state law.
  2. Become familiar with victim red flags and identifiers, as well as common behaviors of traffickers.
  3. Gain knowledge about the task force, resources the task force is working to build, and what South Carolina is doing to fight this crime.

Presented by: Marie Sazehn, JD, Assitant Attorney General & Human Trafficking Program Coordinator & Toni Lawrimore, LMSW, MPH, VSP, Vistim Services Coordinator of the SC Attorney General's Office.
