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?"
