Indigenous Anti-Human Trafficking

Program Overview

The Indigenous Anti-Human Trafficking Liaison (IAHTL) Program supports Indigenous communities in providing survivor focused and localized responses to Human Trafficking. The IAHTL initiative was created by and for
Indigenous people in order to end Human Trafficking in our communities.

The program develops and implements culturally grounded presentations, educational materials, trauma-informed tools and resources, as well
as, awareness and prevention tools specific to Indigenous HT for communities that are created with invaluable guidance from survivors.

Liaisons organize community engagement and educational sessions with survivors, including youth, Two-Spirit and those who have recently exited, focusing on their strengths and resiliencies in order to inform the development
of best practice models.
