Emerging Issues Webinar: Economic Mobility and Financial Literacy

The National Human Trafficking Training and Technical Assistance Center will host a 90-minute webinar on emerging trends and case studies addressing economic mobility. The webinar will highlight survivor-informed models that organizations may implement on financial literacy and sustainable employment opportunities for people who have experienced trafficking. 

As a result of this webinar, participants will be able to do the following: 

  • Understand institutional barriers to economic mobility and financial sustainability for individuals who have experienced human trafficking. 

  • Share successful approaches to integrating financial literacy and financial capacity-building services into trafficking programming. 

  • Discuss innovative programs that provide greater access to post-secondary employment opportunities. 

This webinar will be moderated by Jenna Novak (Deputy Director, NHTTAC) and will include Jill Brogdon (Vice-Chair, Colorado Human Trafficking Council), Tannia Ventura (Director of Partnerships and Education, FreeFrom), and Lenore Schaffer (Senior Manager of Economic Empowerment, Restore NYC) as speakers on the topic.
