Call for Poster Presentations

Organizers are seeking several engaging 3-5-minute poster presentations, with a voice recorded over 1-3 poster slides, to combine into a poster presentation on each morning of the conference.


Posters should be related directly to the field of child trafficking (either sex or labor trafficking), and fall into one of the following categories:

Image of a lightbulb. Icons made by Good Ware from Flaticon.


Tips on practice innovations that have been working well (in general or especially online during coronavirus)


Descriptions of new or updated policies affecting Maryland, information about local, state, or national legislative advocacy campaigns


Background, methods, findings & discussion about trafficking-related research that may be of interest to practitioners


An elevator speech about your agency, as though in a conference exhibition hall or community outreach fair

Please email a brief description of your proposed poster and your name and affiliation to Sharon Henry by 10/28/2020 for consideration.

I really enjoyed the conference[...]. Helps me to look at trafficking with a somewhat different lens.

It is so important to set aside our own perspectives and be challenged to do better and create systematic change. Thank you for bringing in these powerful women.
