POSTPONED – Human Trafficking Conference

“Light 2020: A Multistate Educational Conference on Human Trafficking” To Be Rescheduled Amid COVID-19 Travel Restrictions

The Center for Prevention of Abuse (CFPA) will postpone Light 2020: A Multistate Educational Conference on Human Trafficking on April 1-2, 2020 at Par-A-Dice Hotel Casino due to travel bans and restrictions for conference participants around the country surrounding COVID-19. The free community night scheduled for March 31 is also postponed. The new dates are not yet scheduled.

Due to travel restrictions affecting many of our participants, including keynote speakers, session leaders, and conference attendees, we are confident in our decision to postpone Light 2020. We take the health and safety of all of our conference participants very seriously and look forward to hosting this important educational conference on human trafficking in the future.

We thank you for your understanding and patience with us during this unforeseen circumstance. All conference goers will receive a full refund of their conference registration fee. For concerns, please reach out to Camille and cyameen@centerforpreventionofabuse.org
