Upcoming Panel on Homeless & Street-involved Youth: Intersections with Human Trafficking

HOMELESS & STREET-INVOLVED YOUTH:INTERSECTIONS WITH HUMAN TRAFFICKING
Tuesday, October 27, 2015, 6:00-8:00pm
New York City Bar Association

Join an expert panel of service providers, policy advocates, and researchers to learn more about homeless and street-involved youth in New York City. There will be a rich discussion of issues that these youth face, including experiencing or being at risk for human trafficking, exploitation, survival sex, interacting with the criminal justice system and issues particular to LGBT or immigrant youth. Panelists will also draw from the research presented in the recently-released report by the “Urban Institute, Locked In: Interactions with the Criminal Justice and Child Welfare Systems for LGBTQ Youth, YMSM, and YWSW Who Engage in Survival Sex”. Policy recommendations will be explored as well as areas where attorneys and other service providers working with vulnerable youth can be more effective in using a rights-based approach.

Speakers: Laura Berger Staff Attorney at the Immigrant Women & Children Project at the City Bar Justice Center
Brendan Conner Staff Attorney at Streetwise & Safe
Kate D’Adamo National Policy Advocate, Sex Workers’ Project
Meredith Dank Senior Research Associate, The Urban Institute

Moderated By: Suzanne Tomatore Director of the Immigrant Women & Children Project at the City Bar Justice Center
