NCMEC Parent CONNECT Child Safety Discussion series: Keeping Boys Safer From Child Sex Trafficking

Parent CONNECT Child Safety Discussion 

Billy Joe watches along and comments through the discussion. This is a great place for parents to begin their understanding of how boys are at risk of child sex trafficking and and how they can start conversations with their children. If you have a kid, they’re at risk. Get educated.

I’ve had the opportunity to watch / hear Mr. Earl in other places, and he has impressed me with his honesty and forthrightness greatly. He doesn’t hold back, and that’s exactly what we need to hear. There is no time to mince words when we’re talking about children.

The prevalence of male victimization in relation to child sex trafficking is on the rise. Learn more about the stigmas that heighten risk factors, understand indicators, how to framework prevention and how to access help and resources. This session is hosted by Eliza Reock of NCMEC and she will be joined by a survivor consultant, Nathan Earl.
