HTLA Class 7 Recommendations Presentation & Graduation

The Human Trafficking Leadership Academy (HTLA) is committed to developing and expanding survivor-informed services while also providing leadership development opportunities to survivor leaders and ally professionals. Fellows work collaboratively to provide substantive recommendations that will inform research, policies, and programs that improve awareness, understanding, and assistance to survivors of trafficking or those at risk of trafficking.

Fellows will use new leadership skills to work with their class in developing recommendations that will inform new research, policies, and programs that improve awareness, understanding, and assistance to survivors of human trafficking and those who are at risk of experiencing human trafficking. Selected candidates for Class 7 will work together to address the project question: "How can federally funded human trafficking service providers address institutional inequities and barriers to accessing services for survivors of human trafficking? How can these networks improve their response to human trafficking for communities of color?"

On September 24, 2021, from 3-5 p.m. (eastern), HTLA Class 6 fellows will be presenting their recommendations to federal, public, and private stakeholders. NHTTAC, Coro Northern California, and OTIP will be holding a Graduation ceremony to celebrate the completion of the program.  

Note: This event is not open to the public. For more information, visit NHTTAC’s page on the Human Trafficking Leadership Academy.
