ABOUT the presentation (Youth Only)

Caught Up features snippets from the narrative hip hop film TURNT to illustrate some of the tactics used by sex traffickers to recruit victims, highlighting the specific impact on one of the most vulnerable populations: foster care youth. The film clips and discussion follow the journey of a foster care youth being recruited out of the group home, groomed and ultimately forced into trafficking.

The presenter will also discuss some of the ways traffickers recruit online and was to protect against that. This discussion is intended to give attendees an idea of the tools they use to support organizations that serve youth.
