The Curriculum

Understanding and Addressing Sex Trafficking in Our Community

This new, Oregon-specific introductory sex trafficking curriculum builds awareness and gives community groups and service providers specific calls to action.

The curriculum includes stories from trafficking survivors through videos from The Life Story » to highlight the risks, vulnerabilities, and impact of sex trafficking.

You’ll customize the curriculum based on your community’s efforts, the requesting audience, and the delivery method (in-person versus virtual).

For access to the facilitator’s guide, slide deck, and handouts, visit Workday Learning. Please note that you will need to have a Workday Learning account and take part in the Train-the-Trainer series to access these materials.

Participants should receive a hard copy of the facilitator’s guide by March 9th.
