Tuesday, March 20 at 7:30-9:30 p.m.

This year our conference includes numerous sessions and events focused on NAPNAP Partners for Vulnerable Youth’s first multi-year initiative, the Alliance for Care Coordination of Children in Human Trafficking. We invite you to join us for a special screening of I Am Jane Doe, a “viscerally emotional” (The Washington Post) documentary about the battle that several American mothers are waging on behalf of their middle-school daughters, victims of sex trafficking on a notorious website for adult classified ads. We agree that this movie is “a powerful call to action” (The Los Angeles Times), especially for nurse practitioners who may come into contact with victims and potential victims of child human trafficking.
Please pre-register for this event during registration.
The NAPNAP Foundation, e-chapter, Adolescent SIG and Child Maltreatment SIG are pleased to sponsor this event.
