Human Trafficking is a multi-billion dollar industry worldwide, depriving millions of their human rights and enriching criminals who exploit the most vulnerable among us. Yet when gang investigators focus on drugs, guns, and homicides, illegal street gangs are often able to keep their sex trafficking activity under the radar. This webinar will explore the connection between domestic violence and organized street gangs profiting from the sex trafficking of both minors and adults. 

Amy Hutsell and Kaitlin Fain Salinas are experts on Georgia’s innovative anti-gang/anti-human trafficking efforts. They will examine the prevalence of gang sex trafficking, pathways to victimization, recruitment techniques, and look at society’s demand for commercial sex.  

Hutsell and Salinas will also share Georgia’s data-driven, pro-active approach to human trafficking investigations with an emphasis on strong victim services.  


As a result of this webinar, participants will be better able to:

  • Recognize the prevalence of exploitation of women and girls in gangs.  
  • Examine the intersection between domestic violence and sex trafficking.  
  • Describe the pathways to victimization and exploitation by organized criminal networks.  
  • Implement policies to address sex trafficking in gangs with a jurisdiction-wide, trauma-informed and proactive approach.
