Sixth Annual Human Trafficking Awareness Month Panel Discussion
We held our Sixth Annual Panel Discussion for Human Trafficking Awareness Month again this January 2023 at Millikin University! We were lucky again to partner with Set Free-Macon County and had a great mix of local advocates and students at the panel discussion. This year we focused on legal approaches to human trafficking focusing on federal and state level prosecutions and the manifestations of this crime in Central Illinois.
We has some great lawyers on the panel including: Gregory K. Harris, United States Attorney for the Central District of Illinois, Dan Wright, Sangamon County States Attorney, and Katrina Quillen, Supervising Attorney, Legal Aid Society of Metropolitan Family Services. We focused on the different challenges with human trafficking law that can help or hinder holding traffickers accountable for this crime in the United States legal system and improvements for representing human trafficking victims in immigration law.
