Description: 

As healthy sexuality gains momentum as an approach to sexual violence prevention, it can be easy for beginners to feel they are in uncharted territory. This workshop will focus on exploring the basics of the healthy sexuality framework and how it connects to and strengthens prevention efforts. No question or concern is off-limits as we create a space that is centered on increasing participant’s skills, comfort-level and fluency in discussing and defining healthy sexuality. Participants will learn strategies for including healthy sexuality in sexual violence prevention efforts. This workshop will be interactive in format, allowing for activities, discussion, and feedback regarding opportunities and barriers. Note: this is a repeat of the training with the same name in November 2012. It was so popular, we decided to offer it again!

Description: 

The US Department of State estimates that 600,000 to 800,000 victims are trafficked through international borders each year, which does not include countless numbers trafficked domestically within their own countries.  Human trafficking is considered the fastest growing criminal enterprise in the 21st century - a nine billion dollar industry.  The United States is one of the top three destination points for trafficked victims, the majority of which are women and children.

While domestic violence and human trafficking are different forms of victimization, many similarities and points of intersection exist.  Traffickers prey on those who suffer most from social factors like gender discrimination, violence and abuse.  This workship will provide an overview of human trafficking in the United States and in colorado and offer concrete tools and resources for effective response.
