We are honored to have Paul Chang of the U.S. Department of Labor, Carolyn Matzger, Deputy District Attorney, and Jamie Quient of Free to Thrive speak at our MCLE Conference on Human Trafficking on January 12, 2019 at AMN Healthcare.
Paul Chang presented on labor trafficking and cases involving the exploitation of human trafficking victims by businesses, and the pervasiveness of labor trafficking in the United States.
Carolyn Matzger discussed issues involving the nature of sex trafficking in San Diego, its perpetrators, and its victims.
Jamie Quient spoke about the legal obstacles that human trafficking survivors encounter and how her organization, Free to Thrive, helps human trafficking survivors with legal issues so that they can obtain access to housing, education, and other opportunities.
It was a phenomenal conference. Thank you to our speakers, all those who came, and to volunteers who helped with setting up and cleaning up! Your attendance and participation made this a big success!
