Realities of Human Trafficking in Massachusetts - Featuring the Polaris Project

Tuesday, March 6, 2018 5:30 PM to 7:00 PM
Boston Bar Association - 16 Beacon Street, Boston, MA


With opening remarks from Beth Keeley, the Chief of the Human Trafficking Division at the Massachusetts Attorney General’s Office and featuring speakers from the national human trafficking organization, the Polaris Project, this educational program will address the results of Polaris’ recent research report, “The Typology of Modern Slavery: Defining Sex and Labor Trafficking in the United States .” Using data collected from Polaris’ national human trafficking hotline, including data specific to Massachusetts and the Northeast, this program will shed light on the various forms of human trafficking that are most common in Massachusetts and specific ways that attorneys can be part of the safety net for survivors.

The program is open to attorneys in the public and private sectors, including law students, and will be informative for those who work regularly with human trafficking survivors as well as those who wish to learn more about how they can help.

This program is sponsored in part by the Joan B. DiCola Fund of the Boston Bar Foundation. This fund provides critical support for Boston Bar Association programs and initiatives that foster the education and professional development of lawyers.
