January is Human Trafficking Awareness Month and the twentieth anniversary of the passage of the TVPA (Trafficking Victims Protection Act). The U.S. Attorney's office for the Western District of New York in conjunction with the Western District of New York Human Trafficking Task Force is hosting a day-long training on human trafficking in both Rochester and Buffalo. Both trainings will have the same content, so depending on your geographic location, you are welcome to attend either training.

The training will education law enforcement and service providers on coercion-based sex and labor trafficking. The panel of local and national experts will also address how a multi-disciplinary approach is necessary in combating the complex issue of human trafficking in our region.
