The Human Trafficking Task Force of the Portland Human Rights Commission is co-sponsoring a Free Legal Counseling Event on Sunday, April 27, from 3:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. at the Sauvie Island Grange, located at 14443 NW Charlton Rd. Portland, OR 97231
The program will provide free legal counseling to anyone who believes they have been a victim of workplace related crime, including human trafficking. Most trafficking victims do not “self-identify” as such. Thus, an effective way to identify and assist trafficking victims and survivors is to provide legal counseling to those who believe they have been victimized in other related ways, including wage theft, workplace violence or threat of violence, or coercion to work by threats related to immigration status. Program participants will have access volunteer immigration attorneys and interpreters.
The program is co-sponsored by Oregonians Against Human Trafficking (OATH), the HRC Human Trafficking Task Force, the Oregon Chapter of the American Immigration Lawyers Association, Immigration Counseling Service, and Catholic Charities.
