  • Shakeia Kelley, Senior Social Worker says:

    I loved the different indicators to look out for: Some indicators I had never heard of as a sign of trafficking. Oftentimes, we are told to look at the young woman that is loud, boisterous and acting out. I have never thought to look at the very quiet girl or overachiever. Also, I had a reality check during the webinar…This webinar helped me to understand that behind the “acting out” is a cry for help, in need of supportive, love or something else.

    So I thank you very much for the webinar! I have told a colleague about the webinar who was not able to attend due to a client appointment.
