The Intersection between Prostitution, Human Trafficking, and Victimization Among Justice-Involved Women

The National Resource Center on Justice Involved Women, in partnership with the Center for Court Innovation, conducted a webinar titled to explore the nexus between prostitution, human trafficking, and victimization among justice involved women. The webinar discussed strategies that justice system stakeholders can take to identify women who may be victims of exploitation and human trafficking, address their needs, and improve their response to these women.
