Panel 2 - Healing the Whole Person: 21st Century Civil Remedies

The government is responsible for holding perpetrators of human trafficking accountable criminally, but survivors need access to free legal representation for civil claims as well. How are larger corporations being held accountable for the facilitation or willful ignorance of trafficking that occurs on their watch? This panel will explore ways trauma can impact survivors, ways vicarious trauma impacts legal practitioners, and consider approaches to utilizing attorneys in a pro-bono capacity to help survivors heal.
