The State Human Trafficking Task Force – WorkGroup 1 Presents

Conversation with An Expert

Wednesday, January 26, 2022 @ 12:00PM

The Speakers

Maja Hasic serves as the Anti-Human Trafficking Program Director with Tapestri Inc., a non-profit social service agency that works with survivors of violence from the immigrant and refugee community. Ms. Hasic designs and provides trainings and outreach to mainstream service providers, law enforcement, and community organizations on human trafficking on a local, state-wide, and national basis. Currently, Ms. Hasic works to establish collaborative relationships with other nonprofit organizations and law enforcement around the issue of human trafficking. Ms. Hasic holds a Master’s degree in International Relations and a Bachelor’s degree in Political Science from Georgia State University.

Labor Trafficking, Focus on Minors

While recent press coverage of labor trafficking abuses and arrests have been helpful in shining a light on labor trafficking as an issue in Georgia, the extent of labor trafficking in our state is still unknown due to the complexities of the crime and misidentification with other forms of abuse. The diverse landscape of the state is also a contributing factor in the increased prevalence of labor trafficking in Georgia. Please join Maja Hasic, Anti-Human Trafficking Program Director at Tapestri, as she presents information on how to identify labor trafficking cases, the relevant laws that address labor trafficking and labor exploitation, and labor trafficking case study examples.

Please share information on this training opportunity with your networks, and we look forward to seeing you on January 26th!
