Justice & Security Cluster
Many are interested in stopping human trafficking. This project is aimed at providing an opportunity to highlight this problem in the world, but especially in NH, and educate NH Law Enforcement and the PSU community (graduate and undergraduate students, staff/faculty, community members, other professionals) about the nature and scope of this problem in NH with the purpose of building momentum for an ongoing open lab collaborative, called Live Free, that will work to address human trafficking issues locally and globally. This 2 hour training, scheduled to take place in Heritage Commons on March 8, 2017 from 5-7pm will introduce our community to the NH Human Trafficking Coalition, provide an overview of human trafficking in NH, strategies for law enforcement, hear a survivor’s perspective and invite attendees to participate in a new collaboration and work to combat human trafficking locally and globally. The training is titled “The Face of Human Trafficking from Victim to Enforcement” and will host 3 guest speakers: Mike Posanka, Resident Agent in Charge, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), Homeland Security Investigations, Manchester, NH, Jasmine Grace Marino, Human Trafficking Survivor, Ministry Associate at the Abolitionist Network and Manchester Police LT Nicole Ledoux. A pre-event business meeting meal discussion with the presenters for the purpose of building this relationship and discussing future collaboration will take place prior to the training.
