Sexual Exploitation: Learn how to identify, report, and fight sex trafficking in Montana
Course presented by Councilperson Penny Ronning
Training: four credit hours
When: Sep 22, 2021 from 1 pm to 5 pm
In its March 2019 edition, Yellowstone Valley Woman Magazine reports that “Billings, and Montana in general, are among the most profitable places for commercial sex in the western United States.” A Billings pimp, for instance, can sell a fourteen-year-old girl for $900 an hour. A single female in an illicit massage business will generate $3,800 to $18,000 a month. And it’s not just in illicit massage businesses where human trafficking occurs. Victims are sold for sex in every hotel in the city from the cheapest to the most expensive.
Worldwide, nearly 5 million people, 99 percent of them woman and girls, are victims of human trafficking. According to one report, human trafficking is the world’s fastest growing crime. While victims are all ages, children are especially vulnerable. About one out of seven endangered runaways reported to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children in 2017 were likely child sex trafficking victims. And these numbers continue.
This course is being presented by Yellowstone Property Managers Association and is available on a first come, first serve basis. Licensees will receive 4 mandatory continuing education credits and all participants will receive a certificate of completion at the conclusion of the course.
This course is $50/person for YPMA members and their staff, for non-members the cost is $60/person.
