"Human Trafficking in Wisconsin, by Rachel Monaco-Wilcox. A ShopTalk event.
Cases of human trafficking have been identified in all 72 counties in Wisconsin. Yet most people doubt this, thinking “that can’t be happening here!” If we are in a state of denial, who is helping survivors? Who is working on policies? Who is educating young people about risks? In this talk, Rachel will address the myths and misconceptions around sex trafficking in Wisconsin, illuminate the situation in Wisconsin, and explain what led her to start the LOTUS (Legal Options for Trafficked and Underserved Survivors) legal clinic in 2013. She has ideas for how citizens can make a difference and will modify the talk to suit different audiences by adjusting content for appropriateness to setting.
