North American Human Trafficking Conference 2023

Investigating and prosecuting human trafficking cases are complex and require techniques that carefully balance public safety with the rights of victim-survivors. The commercial sex ecosystem thrives on an unrelenting demand, which fuels the supply and ultimately leads to the prolific distribution of victims. This conference will explore advanced human trafficking investigation and prosecution skills, which will aid in successful investigations and ultimately convictions.

"Be The One" Award - Nominations Now Open

The Human Trafficking Training Center’s “Be the One” Award is inspired by what we have learned from survivors of human trafficking and now we inspire law enforcement.

When we have asked survivors about their experiences with law enforcement, what they almost always tell us was their experiences were negative, they were treated poorly and not offered the help they needed. What is interesting though is that they are also very pro-law enforcement. They love the police. We were struck by this and have asked why. Why after all these negative experiences would they like police? And their answer is because, “there was that one, that one officer who took the time to talk to me, to listen, to earn my trust, and when I was ready, was there for me. It was that one officer who saved my life”.

And so, we tell officers as they leave our trainings that with their new knowledge and skillsets, to go out and “Be the One”, that “YOU can be that one that makes a difference and even save someone’s life.” Our award is named in honor of Meghan Connors, who was once a victim of human trafficking and survived. She is now an advocate and a powerful voice helping to train law enforcement, medical professionals, and victim advocates. Meghan has a unique gift for communicating her experiences in a way we would describe not as storytelling, but as perspective sharing, paradigm shifting and eye opening. She provides clarity and insight into something that very few people truly understand. When Meghan speaks, you could hear a pin drop on the floor.

We are proud to have an award named after such an inspiring person and leader in the human trafficking arena.
