Anti-sex trafficking programs and organizations across the US report that survivors on their caseload are overrepresented by youth or young adults from the foster care system. Some programs even report as high as 85% of the survivors getting services from their programs have had contact with the foster care system. Tune in to hear from Josie Feemster, a survivor advocate who’s worked with survivors who’ve been in the foster care system, as we learn how trafficking and foster care overlap and what we in the trucking and transportation industries can do about it.
