Vulnerability Assessment Listening Session
Every time we complete an assessment for the Central Illinois Human Trafficking Task Force for the Department of Justice grant we present it to the task force members at one of the task force general membership bi-monthly meetings. Then we also send the assessment to them to read over and hold a listening session where they can provide more feedback. While we finished the assessment and presented it at the November meeting, due to the holidays and a busy January with human trafficking awareness month events we pushed this listening session back to February. The goal of the assessment is to produce the reports and then create feedback loops with task force members where they feel empowered to offer changes and additions based on their experience working with human trafficking. We had almost 20 members attend the listening session and gathered useful recommendations of things to add to the assessment before we send it on the Department of Justice as a requirement of the grant.
