Human trafficking is a local concern in the Niagara Falls/Buffalo region.  Men and women are forced in to the sex industry or labor market through fraud or coercion and often times have no means of escape.  This CLE will explore what our local legal community and court system are doing to end this blight on our region and will assist attorneys in identifying red flags and risk factors so that appropriate referrals can be made, and survivors’ rights as crime victims can be upheld.
