As Dottie Laster completes another Anti-Human Trafficking Advocacy training session, the necessity for training across the country becomes clearer, this time in a heartwarming way. To her surprise, on the first day of the 2 day session, the attendees contained two survivors of trafficking which she assisted in their rescue and restoration. At the end of a long day of training, her thoughts return to other victims in need of the same services and the dire need for advocates to know exactly what to do for them.
Advocacy training is where anyone can learn about case histories, legal details and distinctions in place to stop and punish traffickers, and how to become an advocate who brings recovery and services to survivors. It takes much more than reading books and articles, or even just the passion to help. Although both important, the rescue of trafficking victims is a dangerous business, and without proper training and support services, the dangers become quite risky. Victim restoration back into society is a specific plan of action, unlike any other, and they need specific resources to be available.
Dottie Laster is a nationally recognized expert in the field of human trafficking, has been trained by the Department of Justice to educate law enforcement, businesses and organizations on human trafficking, and has been the architect and leader of human trafficking task forces and coalitions in many cities in Texas and California. She was appointed an original member of the U. S. Attorney’s Human Trafficking Rescue Alliance, a human trafficking task force often noted as a model for the nation. As a part of this task force, she trained over 5,000 police officers and worked directly with adult and child victims.
Dottie Laster and Laster Global Consulting provide project development, consultancy, and training resources in domestic and international trafficking. The strong multi-disciplinary team has an established track record of helping victims of trafficking and developing anti-trafficking programs with law enforcement, universities, faith-based, and non-profit organizations.
