When you think about human trafficking, you don’t think about how it can be affecting your neighbors, your customers, and your community. On this week’s episode of the Tallahassee Business Podcast, presented by Event Owl, Robin Hassler Thompson, Executive Director of the Survive and Thrive Advocacy Center (STAC), joins us to share why it’s important to be vocal and find our role as the business community to help combat human trafficking. Since the onset of the pandemic caseloads at STAC have tripled, and half of those have been labor trafficking. Robin encourages business owners and employees to attend one of STAC’s monthly trainings to learn about the red flags to look for in human trafficking.
