Presented by: Ashley Anstett & Amanda Swanson, Oregon Attorney General Sexual Assault Task Force

Learning Session: The Voluntary Services Model

This session will address the use of the voluntary services model when working with trafficking victims. This model focuses on empowerment, agency, and relationship, rather than compliance-driven services. We will highlight the need to build relationships with survivors as allies and partners rather than providers. Participants will receive tangible tools to help your services be truly trauma informed and victim centered.

Amanda Swanson has 13 years of experience working with and for victims of human trafficking. She currently chairs the Attorney General's Trafficking Intervention Advisory Committee working with stakeholders around the state of Oregon on addressing the state's response for victims of trafficking. 

Ashley Anstett began working with survivors of sexual violence in 2015 with The Sexual Assault Resource Center (SARC) primarily with survivors of domestic human trafficking. While at SARC, she was able to serve as a confidential advocate to youth and young adults, and helped them navigate systems to access resources.
