The 2015 summit’s focus on Human Trafficking and the Sexual Exploitation of Children and Youth in the United States seeks to initiate a national dialogue on the movement to combat human trafficking and child sexual exploitation by engaging, educating, and empowering attendees. The conference will feature three workshop sessions that address hot topic issues and evidenced based practices and programs in the comprehensive response to human trafficking such as: methods of investigation and prosecution of human trafficking perpetrators, factors contributing to child trafficking and exploitation, recovery services for child victims and their families, as well as legislative and policy issues. This Summit aims to enhance collaboration and improve the response to child sexual exploitation and human trafficking by addressing prevention, investigation, prosecution and treatment.
The summit will conclude with the annual Steel Magnolia Gala commemorating the champion and namesake of Wynona’s House, the late Senator Wynona Lipman. The Gala pays tribute to community members and institutions for their outstanding commitments and achievements for child victims of abuse and neglect. This year Wynona’s House will honor Senator Stephen Sweeney, the legendary Gloria Gaynor, NFL Hall of Famer Harry Carson, and Investors Bank for their contributions and dedications to child victims of abuse and neglect.
