4th Annual Human Trafficking Forum

Resources for a Powerful Anti-Trafficking Movement

Agnes Scott College, Lower Evans Hall - January 18, 2019

 

The landscape of anti-trafficking work continues to shift. Advocates, law enforcement, survivors, prosecutors, and allies are navigating volatile and harmful policy changes while trying to provide effective services to survivors and bring human traffickers to justice. This reactionary environment has left little time to build core skills and has created new tensions along old fault lines. It has also fortified the resolve of anti-trafficking stakeholders committed to a rights-based approach and created new opportunities for collaboration. While traffickers continue to exploit those made vulnerable, and systemic barriers continue to impede progress, professionals must maintain focus, develop new strategies to protect victims, and sharpen the fundamental skills necessary for this work.

 

Tapestri remains committed to ensuring all survivors of human trafficking have access to justice, safety and opportunity. Join Tapestri for the unique opportunity to grow your professional skill-set and ground your work in the collective goal of ending human trafficking.

 

Through education, community organizing, direct services and advocacy, we can help improve the lives of those it serves. We provide streamlined access and direct services for foreign-born survivors of human trafficking, domestic violence and sexual assault.

 

Breakfast and Lunch will be included.

Directions to Our Forum: Agnes Scott College 

Agnes Scott College is very easily accessible via MARTA. You can take the train to the Decatur station; the college is a half mile walk away. There are several MARTA bus routes that service Agnes Scott as well.   

 

You may also choose to drive to Agnes Scott. Here are directions.   

The forum will be in Lower Evans Hall (on the map, it is building 24). When you are facing campus from College Avenue, Lower Evans is on the left side of the campus. Above ground is the Evans Dining Hall. We will be in the lower part of this building (hence Lower Evans). When you are looking at Evans, walk around the right side of the building past the patio tables to access the right set of doors. 

Free parking is available in the front loop (right off of E. College Avenue) and in the parking deck. In the map of campus attached, these locations correspond to P1 and P2. The front loop is closer and includes some handicap parking spots, so it is the best choice for attendees with limited mobility but is much smaller than the deck.
