January is National Human Trafficking Prevention Month. Every year since 2010, the President has dedicated the month to raise awareness about human trafficking and to educate the public about how to identify and prevent this crime. The U.S. Department of State raises awareness of human trafficking domestically and abroad, through U.S. embassies and consulates.

youthSpark and Fulton County Juvenile Court (FCJC) are honored to host a special conversation with the Hon. Judge Nina Hickson, former Fulton County Juvenile Court Chief Judge, youthSpark Co-Founder, and one of the "Founding Mothers of Georgia' Human Trafficking Movement" with Juvenile Court Judge Coy Johnson. We will highlight how FCJC was pivotal in spearheading the first safehouse in the Southeast Region of the United States, urged community leaders to raise awareness, and advocated for groundbreaking legislative change. We look forward to a discussion on how today's efforts use some of the same pillars as we embark on a new journey to protect youth from exploitation and other vulnerable behaviors.
