The Freedom Plan is an educational initiative that embraces collaboration opportunities in creating awareness and educating our community about human trafficking, provides direct services to the Latina immigrant survivors and has an anti-trafficking coalition to help guide and support the efforts against human trafficking on Long Island.
Financial Literacy Workshops:
A 6 week series financial literacy workshops that will help survivors of human trafficking learn how to become financially independent and stable.
Cultural Adaptive Counseling:
Culturally trauma-informed evidence-based counseling practices such as healing circles, knitting our stories, and mindfulness infused with culturally adaptive techniques to aid survivors through their healing process.
Workforce Developmental Skills Workshops:
A 6-week series program educating survivors on job searching, resume writing, job-readiness, practical skills for interviewing, what are safe and secure work environments, and what their rights are.
Through The Freedom Plan SEPA Mujer will strengthen our ability to serve Latina immigrant victims of Human Trafficking (Sex and Labor) on Long Island through properly educating our community on what human trafficking is, how to properly identify victims and refer them to safe trauma informed services.
We are providing a two one and half hour series training/workshops:
1) Introduction to Human Trafficking:
What is Human Trafficking? Introduces the topic of human trafficking, both sexual and labor, how to identify it, to raise awareness and provide a basis for further discussion.
2) Identifying Human Trafficking, Know Your Rights and Resources: Detail the range of comprehensive legal needs a victim of human trafficking may have, including immigration issues, family law, employment law, criminal defense, enforcement, and civil actions.
Training developed to equip professionals in their field of work (ie: health, education, social services, entertainment) with skills to identify, treat, and respond appropriately to human trafficking victims at their place of employment.
SEPA Mujer’s The Freedom Plan Coalition will bring together a broad-based coalition of invested experts from survivors, community-based organizations, advocacy groups, community members and trauma informed experts to assist with survivors in bringing ideas to further support survivors of human trafficking with their needs and provide fundamental guidance for effective anti-human trafficking work through advocacy, education and community development throughout Long Island for Latina immigrant women.
