How do the youth victims of human trafficking leave the shadows and enter into a daunting legal arena? To bring their cases to court, trafficked youth often need to be sought out by the legal system and guided through an intimidating process. Laura Matthews-Jolly will outline the challenges of identifying trafficked youth, stabilizing their immigration status, and assisting them in matters related to family, education, employment, and post trafficking stabilization.
Laura Matthews-Jolly is an Equal Justice Works fellow at the City Bar Justice Center providing resources and legal representation to youths who have been subjected to human trafficking.
