Congratulations to our newest Human Trafficking Leadership Academy (HTLA) graduates! On September 10, 2020, HTLA Class 5 fellows presented their recommendations based on the following project question: “How can culture be a protective factor in preventing trafficking among all Indigenous youth?” HTLA Class 5 was created specifically for individuals with Native backgrounds—including American Indian, Alaska Native, Pacific Islander, Native Hawaiian and other Indigenous groups—and is the first HTLA Class to recruit nationally. HTLA is a fellowship that brings together survivors and allied professionals to build leadership skills, knowledge, traditions, and a professional network while collaborating to enhance programs and services that support survivors of trafficking and those at risk of trafficking.
