HTPP and Eastern Shore Training featured in Dorchester Star

The Human Trafficking Prevention Project (HTPP), a partnership between MVLS and University of Baltimore School of Law was featured by the Dorchester Star. The HTPP traveled to the Eastern Shore last week to provide a training for attorneys, community members, and service providers about post-conviction relief for survivors of trafficking.

HTPP Coordinator Laurie Culkin was quoted in the article, where she explained that, “The Eastern Shore is the second biggest area where we are receiving referrals for human trafficking outside of Baltimore City. We are hoping to have a panel of attorneys out here on the Eastern Shore to refer people too. We want to make sure we can find local support here too.”

January was named Human Trafficking Awareness Month. This is an issue that is historically difficult to document or represent statistically, making it all the more important to become engaged in learning what we can do to provide resources and assistance to those that have been affected by human trafficking.

This coming spring, MVLS, Mid-Shore Pro Bono, and the Human Trafficking Task Force of the Eastern Shore will be holding another training for attorneys about post-conviction relief.
