*We open our non-member survivor trainings to people engaged in informal or precarious work as part of our recognition that development and empowerment of people who are at statistically increased risk of trafficking is violence prevention.
The Training Institute is pausing public offerings for all of March and most of April to provide intensive capacity-building for our members. We’ll be back soon with more public webinars!

On October 26, 2022, the NSN was delighted to host a training on the Four Parts of Accountability for NSN members, friends, and allies. Bringing together movement leaders from across the country, we were honored to have Mia Mingus join us to begin this necessary dialogue about what it means to take accountability for harm caused.

This training offers an overview for interpreters and organizations that work with interpreters on a trauma-informed approach when interpreting for survivors. LINK
This webinar was offered in March and again in May in partnership with FreeFrom. After attending, one survivor emailed to report she had updated her “about me” page to say she no longer accepts free speaking engagements and offering instructions on how to hire her. SURVIVOR EMPOWERMENT FOR THE WIN!
The NSN is also available for conference presentations or customized trainings for organizations looking to build capacity to work with survivors as clients and colleagues and engage in meaningful, evidence-informed anti-trafficking work.
Our training clients include: ATEST (Alliance to End Slavery and Trafficking), Human Trafficking Legal Center, National Association of Student Personnel Administrators, New York State Coalition Against Sexual Assault, VALOR US, and other state and national nonprofits.
