Amanda Finger from the Laboratory to Combat Human Trafficking, a Chapter of the Polaris Project, will present on this current and pressing issue in our society.

The Laboratory to Combat Human Trafficking is an anti-trafficking group focused on research and training.  The organization formed in response to local demand for improved statewide responses to human trafficking.  Since 2010, their staff has trained over 19,000 service providers, law enforcement officers, health care workers, teachers and community members to better identify and assist victims/survivors of trafficking.  In 2013, they also began managing the Colorado Network to End Human Trafficking (CoNEHT) Hotline.  This crisis, tip and referral hotline is operated by trained staff and volunteers and available 24/7 to provide emergency counseling to victims/survivors, and connect them to other social, legal and housing services, as well as to accept tips and information regarding trafficking cases.
