Commercial Sexual Exploitation & Trafficking of Men and Boys: Strategies for Culturally Relevant Engagement
During this workshop, engaged participants will learn how to develop culturally relevant strategies to engage with male victims of sex trafficking or commercial sexual exploitation, and those at risk, more effectively. Attendees will gain a broader knowledge of cultural-specific vulnerabilities that place boys and young men at greater risk for exploitation and that contribute to the lack of identification and treatment. Investing in learning more about the cultural challenges of male youth of color, those using and abusing drugs, youth involved in the criminal justice system, and GBTQ-identifying youth is a responsible first step to effective outreach and engagement. Critical content of this workshop includes reviews of case studies and trending data, as well as the perspectives of a Survivor, victim advocate and outreach worker. Attendees will leave the workshop with practical knowledge of how to prevent male-exploitation, increase victim identification, actualize program outcomes and increase conviction rates.
This session is presented by Nathan Earl, an anti-trafficking pioneer, advocate and visionary leader with a passion for building resilient communities immune to exploitation. He leads the organization, Ark of Freedom Alliance, dedicated to preventing child exploitation, and ending the marginalization of male and LGBTQ+ survivors of violent trauma, and those at risk.
