    A Comprehensive Statewide Response to Human Trafficking

    The Trafficking Response & Intervention Program (T.R.I.P.) was created in Spring 2015. The goal of the program is to develop a comprehensive statewide response to human trafficking that encourages cooperation and coordination across state and local agencies. The Program assists counties and tribal communities in developing the necessary infrastructure to identify trafficking victims, provides training and technical assistance for law enforcement and community partners, and assists with the development of victim service programs for human trafficking survivors.

    Trainings offered:

    Understanding and Addressing Sex Trafficking (UAST)
    An Oregon-specific introductory sex trafficking curriculum that builds awareness and gives community groups and service providers specific calls to action. The UAST includes stories from trafficking survivors through videos from The Life Story to highlight the risks, vulnerabilities, and impact of sex trafficking.

    Indicators: Recognizing and Responding to Sex Trafficking
    Indicators teaches participants to recognize indicators of sex trafficking in minors and take initial steps to respond. This includes reporting suspicions (when appropriate) and continuing to provide services, regardless of whether the survivor discloses trafficking.

    Roadmaps: Understanding Sex Trafficking Through Survivors’ Stories
    Roadmaps is a simulation learning activity used to increase awareness and understanding of sex trafficking in Oregon. Roadmaps is a tool used by facilitators to engage with service providers who work with survivors of sex trafficking. The activities in Roadmaps reveal some of the barriers that survivors encounter. They also provoke participants to think about how their own practices and policies can help or hinder a survivor’s exit from sex trafficking.
