A lecture given by Noeline Blackwell, CEO of Dublin Rape Crisis Centre. Noeline will cover questions like, "What is understood by sex-trafficking? When does it happen? How do we know it is taking place in Ireland (specifically in Dublin)?" Noeline will also speak about the harm that sex trafficking causes and the criminal nature of trafficking. How do we support those we suspect are being trafficked and keep them safe?
