CLE Event: Meeting the Needs of Child Trafficking Victims
Children at Risk of North Texas

June, 2012


Please join CHILDREN AT RISK for:

Meeting the Needs of Child Trafficking Victims: 
The Impact of In re. B.W. 

In 2010, the Texas Supreme Court held that children under 14 cannot be prosecuted for prostitution, decriminalizing young victims of human trafficking. This lunch-hour CLE will provide participants with vital information regarding the current status of Texas law with regard to human trafficking. From prosecuting traffickers to safe harbor legislation and the need for victim services, attendees will hear from experts on our State’s response to this pervasive problem as well as where the greatest need is now for child victims.

Talks include:

In re. B.W. and the Decriminalization of Human Trafficking Victims
Ann Johnson
, The Johnson Law Firm

Safe Harbor Legislation and the Need for Victim Services
Mandi Kimball
, Director, Public Policy and Government Affairs, CHILDREN AT RISK

The Human Trafficking Prevention Task Force: Texas’ Response to Human Trafficking
Geoff Barr
, Assistant Attorney General for Human Trafficking

MCLE Credit and lunch will be provided.
