Creating Cultures of Belonging in Anti-Trafficking Organizations

Stigma is one of the greatest barriers to successful recovery and reintegration into the community after exploitation. Othering is one of the most common ways that anti-trafficking organizations cause unintentional harm to the people in their care. Creating cultures of belonging is essential to increase the success rate of adult education, rehabilitation programs, vocational training, post-exploitation employment, and reintegration.

IATI strategic advisor Debbie Kramlich, Ph.D., will use research to help anti-trafficking organizations create organizational cultures that provide safe, inclusive spaces where restoration can take place.
