Panel 1-  Tech Innovations: Advancing the Counter-Attack on Human Trafficking

As technology rapidly evolves, we have a duty to capitalize on innovation by creating platforms that help victims of human trafficking. This panel will explore the need for harnessing technology to combat human trafficking and ways agencies can partner together in this fight. Panelists will touch on current platforms that help law enforcement find and rescue children, and ways technology can broaden the reach of buyer accountability.
