  • Overview from the Texas Governor's Office's Child Sex Trafficking Team on statewide efforts;
  • Updates from the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services on policies and practices to address children missing from care and exploitation of children in care, as well as case studies on local exploitation cases;
  • Panel of foster care alumni sharing their exploitation experiences and their recommendations to keep kids in care safer;
  • A survivor's perspective on child sex trafficking and the importance of trauma-informed care; and
  • Brainstorming and networking session for participants on reducing the vulnerability of children in care locally.
