Students & Communities Tackling Tough Topics: Community Engagement to End Child Sexual Exploitation | 2021 Indiana University Rural Conference
The number of identified sexually exploited youth in Indiana has risen in recent years, increasing since COVID-19 started. Community Engagement to End Child Sexual Exploitation (CEECSE) presents a pilot assessment of Indiana’s current anti-human trafficking capacity, facilitates multidisciplinary alliances and develops action plans guiding cohesive efforts to end trafficking and other exploitation. Partnering with the non-profit Alliance for Freedom, Restoration, and Justice, the team works together to combat child sexual exploitation and forced labor on the fronts of Prevention, Identification, Exit, Restoration and Reformations. Join us to learn about preliminary findings, immediate impacts, a strategic SWOT analysis, IU’s multidisciplinary collaborations and student involvement.
