January is Human Trafficking Awareness Month! Every day, countless men, women, and children are trafficked in North Carolina. Preventing human trafficking in rental housing is an issue gaining importance in the US. Per the News & Observer on January 11, 2023, North Carolina ranks 9th in human trafficking.

In partnership with the North Carolina Human Trafficking Commission, as multifamily professionals, we can help prevent human trafficking by knowing the signs of human trafficking and how to respond in our interactions with residents and prospective residents. Whether in the leasing process, the maintenance team handling a service work order or taking care of daily onsite operations could save a life. To put an end to human trafficking, we must all know the signs and be willing to SPEAK UP.

Don't miss this opportunity! This session has a seat for all levels of professionals in the multifamily industry.

You Will Learn: 

  • The different types of human trafficking, sex, labor, and domestic servitude
  • Human trafficking in NC 
  • Uncover the myths and facts surrounding human trafficking in NC
  • What to look for and how to recognize the signs of human trafficking in the multi-family industry and our community
  • How to report suspicious activity and possible victims
