HUMAN TRAFFICKING AND YOUTH
Addressing intersectionality and igniting change
FCJ Refugee Centre is organizing a one day forum to bring together multiple stakeholders including refugee and immigrant youth, youth workers, other field professionals and allies to participate in discussions around how multiple forms of human trafficking affect both domestic and migrant youth populations.
Unfortunately, youth are under-represented in dialogues around human trafficking, and intersecting elements of their identities compound vulnerabilities for these populations. As such, the outcomes of this forum are:
1) To engage youth in the discussion of human trafficking and ensure they have a voice through any response mechanisms; and
2) To strengthen and develop networks of support for youth that are victims and/or survivors of human trafficking.
Registration fee: $10.00
Lunch and light refreshments will be provided
Subsidies are available
Registration payment options:
-By cheque or cash: pay at the door
