Discover the hidden and disturbing reality behind the sex trafficking demand within Indian Country.

Union Pacific’s LEAD (Lead, Educate, Achieve and Develop) and CONAH (Council of Native American Heritage) employee resource groups and Creighton University invite community members to a live virtual event, Waktaun: Pay Attention; Be Aware, focused on human trafficking within Indian Country. The victims within Indian Country face very unique and difficult challenges, which make holding suspects an uphill battle. Discover the hidden and disturbing reality behind the sex trafficking demand within Indian Country. This experience will open your eyes to the demand for sex trafficking. Guests will have the opportunity to hear directly from an individual who was a victim within her own Native American community. After the keynote, join us for a panel discussion about human trafficking within Indian Country. The panel will include organizations providing community education and resources for victims, local advocacy groups and a member of the criminal justice community who has decades of experience, both worldwide and within Indian Country.
