5:45 July 18, 2017
Rm 201 City-County Building

Madison Police Detective Roger Baker and Jan Miyaski, Executive Director of Project RESPECT, will present information to members of the Common Council on human trafficking in the city of Madison.

What is Human Trafficking? Human trafficking is the recruiting, enticing, harboring, transporting or obtaining a person for the purposes of commercial sex through fraud, force or coercion. Its usage has increased in recent years as people in law enforcement and social service have sought to draw a distinction between prostitution in which the person selling sex is more or less freely choosing to do so and the more common situation in which a pimp is controlling and profiting from the person who is delivering the sex. (Source MPD)

What is Project RESPECT? Project RESPECT is a women's center that provides advocacy, case management, counseling, crisis intervention, transitional housing and peer support group services for women with prostitution histories that have changed or want to change their lives. We provide a safe and non-judgmental place to meet and talk with other women with similar histories. We assist women to have increased options available to them and reach their goals. Women served include: survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault, childhood sexual abuse, women with chemical dependency and vocational issues.
