ETA and State Efforts to Educate Farmworkers and Ag Employers

Screening children of laborers

Description of Idea :

Children may be coerced into forced labor alongside immigrant community groups or family members. Healthcare, child welfare and school based professionals need industry sector specific screening tools to identify possible child victims. Opportunities to pilot studies in urban and rural may lead to identifying more adult victims from the same sector much like efforts to identify child sex trafficking victims often leads to identifying adult victims. Public awareness campaigns around Sex trafficking often lead with child victims, not because there are more child victims, but because there is a higher empathy factor until the public begins to better understand coercion factors.
