Episode 31: Human Trafficking & Homeless Youth
According to an ASU study, nearly 50% of young adults experiencing homelessness identified as LGBTQ – and the average age of their first homeless experience was at 17 years of age. Of those who participated in the survey, about 40% said they had experienced exploitation in the form of labor or sex trafficking. We’ll be joined live in-studio by Dominique Roe-Sepowitz, Associate Professor at ASU’s School of Social Work for a closer look at this troubling report.
Special guests include: Rob Podlogar, Chief Community Development and Engagement Officer, Valley of the Sun United Way; Tomas Leon, President, Equality Health Foundation; Dominique Roe-Sepowitz, Associate Professor, ASU School of Social Work
