A Feminist Survival Guide to Seattle

As many as 500 King County minors are sexually trafficked annually – at least, those are the known cases. A number of state regulations have been passed in the last two years to combat this growing problem; advocacy organizations such as Stolen Youth have popped up regionally to offer support, counseling and a safe haven for victims; and a sexual trafficking App was recently developed to educate citizens on the problem and send anonymous tips to police. A panel moderated by Seattle City Council Member Tim Burgess, discusses how the justice system, local non-profits and survivors have teamed up to find solutions to this complicated issue. Other speakers include Judge Barbara Mack, Seattle City Attorney Pete Holmes, Detective Brian Taylor and representatives from the Organization of Prostitution Survivors, YouthCare, Businesses Ending Slavery and Trafficking, and the Center for Children and Youth Justice.
Presented by: Stolen Youth, YouthCare, Center for Children and Youth Justice, Businesses Ending Slavery and Trafficking, and the Organization of Prostitution Survivors.
