What is the Annual Human Trafficking Summit?

Florida’s Statewide Council on Human Trafficking (Council) was created through legislation in 2014. This 15-member Council, chaired by Attorney General Moody, builds on existing state and local partnerships working to combat human trafficking. Members of the Council include law enforcement officers, prosecutors, legislators, as well as experts in the fields of health, education, and social services.

One of the duties of the Council is to hold an annual statewide policy summit with an institution of higher learning. Leaders in our state are committed to making Florida a zero-tolerance state for human trafficking. Learning opportunities created at the Summit will allow Florida to continue working to protect victims, prevent trafficking, and prosecute traffickers.

The Summit brings together local, state, and national leaders working to eradicate all forms of trafficking. Breakout sessions include recent updates and developments in the following areas:

  • legal and law enforcement
  • service delivery
  • policy and research
  • medical and healthcare
Why is the Summit virtual this year?

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and health and safety concerns, the decision was made to change the Summit from a physical attendance format at the DoubleTree by Hilton Orlando at SeaWorld, to a webinar format.

When does the Summit start and end?

The Summit launched at 9 AM (EDT) on October 6, 2020. All content will remain available for 18 months, until April 2022.

What is the cost?

The virtual Summit is free of charge.

Who should attend?

Concerned citizens and professionals from law enforcement, juvenile justice, corrections, victim services, educational institutions, local governments, religious and social services, and labor and employment relations should attend the Summit.

Due to the delicate nature of the subject matter, it is highly recommended that participants be over the age of 18 years old.

Why should you attend?

The Summit offers many opportunities including: learning from experts, identifying successful programs for all citizens, professional and personal development, and more.

Where can I find the handouts mentioned in select presentations?

If a presentation mentions a handout, a link will be provided at the bottom of the video presentation description. If there is no handout link at the bottom of the video description, this means the presentation has no handouts.
