Not everyone understands what human trafficking is and what it isn’t. But a special training opportunity Thursday morning will explain the differences. 

United States Attorneys Will Thompson and William Ihlenfeld will jointly host a human trafficking training event on Thursday, Jan. 18, 2024, from 8:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. at locations in Charleston and Wheeling as well as virtually.

The joint training event is called Human Trafficking: Facts, Fiction, and Federal Law. It will feature participation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Pittsburgh Division, the West Virginia Fusion Center, the West Virginia Foundation for Rape Information and Services (FRIS), the West Virginia Child Advocacy Network and Angie Conn, a human trafficking survivor, victim advocate and founder of SheWhoDares Consulting LLC.
