Human Trafficking Awareness
Poe Center’s 2020 Annual Meeting and Conferences
NC consistently ranks in the top ten for calls to get National Human Trafficking hotline. Governor Cooper proclaimed January as Human Trafficking Awareness Month to bring attention to this issue. Despite the prevalence of human trafficking and increased awareness of the problem in our community confusion and misperceptions around root causes and prevention strategies remain. The Poe Center’s 2020 Annual Meeting and Conferences will address this knowledge gap. The purpose of the 2020
conference is to elevate the conversation past basic awareness, provide a deeper understanding of human trafficking, educate conference attendees about primary prevention strategies, and empower
them to make an impact.
In September, there will be a VIP Reception to kick things off followed by conferences in Raleigh and Greensboro or hosted virtually depending on public health guidance. Each conference will feature an expert keynote speaker and panel discussion. The Raleigh Conference will also include the Poe Center’s Annual Meeting.
Keynote Speaker: Deborah A. Gibbs, MSPH, Director, Victimization and Resiliency Research, RTI International.
