January is National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month.
Interested in learning how your CASA program can take its advocacy to the next level for survivors of trafficking? Join us on Jan. 25, 2021, from 2-3:30 p.m. central, for Innovations in Advocacy to Combat Child Sex Trafficking, a webinar hosted by Dallas CASA Program Director Chad Frymire and Advocate Training Manager Ashley Pierce.
Through grants from the Texas Governor’s Office and the National CASA/GAL Association, Dallas CASA was able to partner with Saving Innocence, a Los Angeles-based advocacy organization. These collaborative efforts resulted in a first-of-its-kind child sex trafficking training focusing on youth in foster care.
Come hear the story of how the training was created, and how CASA is working towards collaborative integration into the Office of the Governor’s Multi-Disciplinary Teams across Texas. We’ll also discuss how Dallas CASA is using this training to create specialized volunteers who are participants in the Multi-Disciplinary Team care coordination program and how this training can be modified to suit the needs of other CASA programs across the state.
