The First Defense program offers free resources supporting the prevention and disruption of human trafficking so you can stop the spread of human rights abuse in our province. ACT’s free educational programs are tailored for individuals, allies, companies, and front-line responders. This training equips participants with the tools needed to accurately identify instances of human trafficking, as well as how to safely respond.
FREE FRONT-LINE TRAINING
While our training is available to anyone, we especially focus on health care workers, police, airport personnel and others who may encounter human trafficking victims.
EVIDENCE-BASED, PERSON-CENTRED LENS
Building a community-based response to trafficking requires a network of people that have the knowledge and skills they need to safely (and independently) respond to instances of trafficking. ACT’s First Defense program meets people where they are and helps them understand what they can do to prevent the spread of human trafficking in Alberta.
The importance of training is clear. Infrequent, inaccurate, or nonexistent training on human trafficking can have grave consequences when victims go unseen, unnoticed, and un-helped.
