The U.S. Department of Justice, Office of Justice Programs, Office for Victims of Crime (OVC) is excited to convene the second Human Trafficking Survivor Forum in Washington, D.C., in January 2016. As part of OVC’s ongoing commitment to meaningful engagement with survivors of human trafficking, this Survivor Forum is an opportunity for survivors to share their perspectives on effective, victim-centered strategies in federal anti-trafficking initiatives. OVC invites human trafficking survivors from across the United States to submit a Statement of Interest (SOI) to participate in the Forum. Because space is limited, 15 to 20 survivors of human trafficking will be selected to participate in the 1-day Forum. If you are not selected to attend this Forum, OVC encourages you to remain involved in this effort through future opportunities.
Survivors may complete the SOI individually or with the assistance of organizations, caregivers, friends, or family members. Please note that submitting an SOI does not confirm attendance.
If invited to participate, time and travel costs for attendance, including airfare, ground transportation, lodging, meals, and incidentals, will be paid up to the maximum allowable amount set by the Department of Justice.
Please share this information with anyone who may be interested in participating. If you are a survivor and interested in participating in the Survivor Forum, please complete the online form
, or complete the Word document
and e-mail it to firstname.lastname@example.org
or fax it to 703–225–2338.
Submissions are due by October 6, 2015, in order to be considered.
If you have any questions or need additional information, please e-mail email@example.com
or call 1–866–682–8880.
Thank you in advance for your interest and assistance in helping make this Forum a great event.
