The Association of Prosecuting Attorney’s Human Trafficking Prosecution Project kicked off in January 2020 with a nationwide Human Trafficking Prosecution Summit, hosted in Miami, Florida just ahead of Super Bowl LIV. The summit was open to prosecutors and allied professionals and featured a curriculum of varied and relevant topics such as demand reduction, task force models, illicit massage parlors, and labor trafficking issues.
The 2nd National Human Trafficking Prosecution Summit is tentatively scheduled for Fall 2020 and is in partnership with the Multnomah County District Attorney’s Office. APA will use ECM task forces and human trafficking prosecutors to develop the agenda for the national summits. This national summit will consist of 150-200 participants depending on the intensiveness of the training.
APA will also continue to work with partners to implement peer-to-peer exchanges, web-based trainings, and onsite mentoring/technical assistance.
