Human trafficking is the fastest growing crime in the world. And it is happening right here in Maine. Join us at New England’s premier human trafficking conference, featuring:
- An exceptional line-up of presenters, including some of the world’s foremost experts on human slavery and representatives from International Justice Mission, ECPAT International, National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, Polaris, and more
- An inspired line up of local presenters including Maine’s Governor Paul LePage and key leaders in the fight against human trafficking in Maine
- An extraordinary coastal Maine venue: Point Lookout
- A focus on prevention, protection, prosecution & partnerships
This is not “just another” conference.
The goal of the Governor‘s Summit on Human Trafficking is to define a roadmap with the intent to develop a comprehensive state-wide response to combat human trafficking in Maine.
Previously, the “Not Here” conferences have included participation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Homeland Security, the U.S. Attorney – District of Maine, Immigration and Customs Enforcement, the Maine Attorney General office, local district attorneys, the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, and numerous victim service providers.
THIS conference is MORE than a launch pad for social action and change.
As the Not Here conference has expanded in scope and attendance, we are excited to present The Governor’s Summit on Human Trafficking.
The summit will:
- Educate attendees on the exploitation of children and women
- Identify labor trafficking trends in Maine
- Offer sessions focusing on different state regions
- Develop best practices around reporting policies and procedures
- Define a roadmap with the intent to develop a comprehensive state-wide response to combat human trafficking in Maine
- Encourage state and region wide networking, collaboration, and team building
- Build capacity for victim services and programs through a comprehensive, community-driven response
