Dear Southeast Texas Stakeholders:
I am excited to invite you to a regional summit facilitated by The Office of the Governor’s Child Sex Trafficking Team (CSTT) on Thursday, January 10, 2019, 1:00-5:00 p.m.
The team will leverage their experience throughout the state to support our local development of a formal anti-human trafficking effort. This effort has been named the “Southeast Texas Alliance Against Trafficking” (STAAT). STAAT will accommodate both an investigative task force component and community/service provider component and will serve both child and adult victims. The Governor’s Office will facilitate this workgroup meeting to identify community strengths, resources, and needs for best combating trafficking and providing survivor care to victims. The creation of coordinated protocols among first responders and capacity building will also be discussed. All interested parties are encouraged to attend this summit. Break-out sessions for each discipline will be offered.
Date: Thursday, January 10, 2019
Time: 1:00-5:00 p.m.
Location: Orange County Convention & Expo Center, 11475 Farm to Market Road 1442, Orange, TX 77630
