GEMS Training Institute Webinar: “How to be a Good Ally”
Wednesday, March 19, 2014
3:00 pm to 5:00 pm
What does it means to be a good ally?
As the movement to end commercial sexual exploitation (CSE) and trafficking continues to gain momentum, this webinar addresses the role of allies. Whether you are working in advocacy, directly with victims, or within an organization that employs survivors of CSE and trafficking, we hope you join us for this valuable discussion.
Our facilitators, Rachel Lloyd and Julie Laurence will discuss the following key points:
- As allies, how can we ensure that we create healthy, nurturing environments that empower survivors?
- How do we make certain that a survivor is treated as an individual and not a collection of their past experiences?
How do we raise awareness without continuing to shame and stigmatize survivors?
