The Human Trafficking Victims Right(6/4)
June 04, 2013
Program Description: The Human Trafficking Victims Rights Act:
An Update on Kentucky's New Human Trafficking Legislation In March of 2013, the Kentucky General Assembly unanimously passed HB 3, the Human Trafficking Victims Rights Act to strengthen the state's response to human trafficking. Central to this legislation was the creation of a Safe Harbor for children exploited in commercial sex to ensure that they are treated as victims instead of criminals. Kentucky's law has been recognized as one of the strongest in the country. This workshop will provide a comprehensive overview of HB 3, state and federal statutes on human trafficking, immigration remedies for victims, current dynamics and prosecutions of labor and sex trafficking across Kentucky, screening of possible victims and referrals to victim services. Judges, prosecutors, criminal defense attorneys, GALs, family law attorneys, plaintiffs' attorneys, employment law attorneys and government attorneys all have a role to play in human trafficking cases and should attend this timely session.
Presenters: Gretchen Hunt, JD, Training Coordinator, Kentucky Association of Sexual Assault Programs and Marissa Castellanos, MSW, Human Trafficking Program Manager, Catholic Charities
