together bring you
The 2nd Annual Collaboration to
Combat Human Trafficking
General Information & Overview
The Community Coalition Against Human Trafficking and the Federal Bureau of Investigation are proud to host the 2nd Annual Collaboration to Combat Human Trafficking training in Knoxville, TN. This year we decided to focus our efforts to provide hands-on,
practical training for our first responders of human trafficking. Our interactive breakout workshops will better equip our attendees to the next level of readiness in our collaborative fight against human trafficking. We want to educate and provide additional tools for law enforcement, attorneys and social service workers that may encounter victims of human trafficking. Our goal is to equip each participant with the knowledge and resources to collaborate with other community partners to help shine the light in the darkness of this hidden crime.
Join Us for a Hands-On Training

Make it Harder to Traffick from TN!
