Join at 3pm EST/12 pm PST for a 90 minute webinar that explores sex trafficking of youth living on the street and in unstable housing situations.  Understand the dynamics of how minor sex trafficking occurs; learn strategies to mitigate opportunities for minors to be trafficked; and find out about resources to address this issue in your community.  Dr. Michele R. Decker, ScD, MPH, Assistant Professor, Department of Population, Family and Reproductive Health at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health will present on this highly informative webinar session.  Her research addresses gender-based violence and related constraints on sexual decision-making, and their health implications.  This work is focused on particularly vulnerable groups including teens and those involved in transactional sex.
