November 9, 2020: “Helping Victims of Human Trafficking Courts Encounter in Juvenile Dependency, Child Welfare and Other Family Court Proceedings” (Webinar)

NIWAP hosted this training at the National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges’ National Conference on Juvenile Justice. This presentation outlines appropriate steps to assist child and adult victims of human trafficking victims identified in state juvenile and family court proceedings. It also explains how to access information to craft court orders that accurately reflect the services and benefits immigrant victims of human trafficking for in your state and avoid unintended consequences in state court orders.

You can elect NIWAP’s general outreach list to receive notices of trainings, webinars, new materials, resources and policies. Judges, court staff, law enforcement and prosecutors can sign up for lists exclusively open to staff working at one of these government agencies. To receive updates, sign up for NIWAP’s outreach list.

If you are a victim advocate, attorney, judge, or other professional working with an immigrant victim and you would like to receive case specific technical assistance on family law issues that arise in cases of immigrant crime victims, please call NIWAP for technical assistance.  (202) 274-4457 or email us at
