Sponsors: 
U.S. Attorney’s Office - Milwaukee and Fight to End Exploitation
Goals: 

The Purpose of our meeting is to ENGAGE our regional law enforcement partners through EDUCATION and EMPOWERMENT to contribute to more resilient communities in Wisconsin on the issue of human trafficking. 

By convening some of the most senior and dedicated local police officials and experts on the issue, the meeting will help catalyze collaboration among diverse stakeholders, explore new solutions and ultimately bring about positive and lasting change in our communities by providing the participants with the unique chance to exchange experience with their peers and jointly identify ways to collaborate that will enable them to effectively tackle human trafficking, one of the most important community challenges of our time. 

With the FOXCONN project underway, the timing is urgent. Experience elsewhere has shown that similar massive projects bring with them a wave of criminal activity that threaten the social resilience of communities. This meeting with give us a rare opportunity to address the pending threats by bringing together the right people with different viewpoints at the right time to explore new solutions that will lead to new approaches to human trafficking before the problem fully manifests itself.
