Topic: "The 5 S's of Demand"
The Clinton Administration developed the three Ps framework (Prevention, Prosecution, and Protection) to help countries think holistically about addressing human trafficking. During the Bush Administration, we developed the four Rs (Rescue, Rehabilitation, Restoration, and Reintegration) to describe the comprehensive sets of services for victims. How about the five Ss to begin thinking about demand?
We will also be joined by Jason and Kristen Weis of SCT Now (Stop Children Trafficking NOW
. Jason and Kristen will discuss the "Save a Child with Your Sole" Walk taking place on September 27 in New York City. This walk will have accompanying walks in 50 other cities and on campuses around the U.S, including Washington DC. We will also discuss building a Walk in DC to help stop child sex trafficking.About our Guest Speaker
