Work Group 7: Survivors Supported and Protected

Co-chaired by Wellspring Living (Jenn McEwen) and Map to Hope (Mary Gates)

  • Focused on aiding survivors in the community, including both those who are still in the trade and those who have been rescued and are receiving treatment.
  • 2022 Initiatives:
    • Work Group 7 will review and make recommendations on the Georgia Sexual Assault Response Team Guide related to human trafficking.  An initial draft of this protocol was created in 2018 as a part of the Georgia Sexual Assault Response Team Project. This protocol guides the procedure and approach to human trafficking victims when they are encountered by law enforcement, prosecutors, medical professionals, sexual assault centers, and other partners.
    • Work Group 7 is in the process of creating a Listserv focused on providing professionals within the antitrafficking network space to find out relevant information, share resources, and expertise, and ultimately connect within the field.  Child Advocacy Centers of Georgia is partnering with Work Group 7 to moderate the listserv.
