Familial Trafficking in America: This session will present the findings from a national study, specifically the prevalence, characteristics, and challenges of domestic minor familial sex trafficking in America. The data was derived from in-depth interviews of justice professionals representing 3,505 cases of sex trafficking during the period of 2018-2021. Major findings call for training of frontline professionals and modified tools to improve victim identification, a better understanding of the unique dynamics between the child victim and related perpetrator that can corrupt the justice process and challenge our assumptions about the efficacy of family reunification.
Part 1 emphasis is on challenges associated with case identification, investigation, and prosecution.
Part 2 will build on Part 1 and explore the challenges with responding to victims of domestic minor familial sex trafficking cases. Emphasis in this session will be on the unique dynamics of familial victims and where services and service providers need to adapt to be more responsive to this form of victimization.
