The goal of the victim advocacy program is to increase access to justice and achieve successful trafficking convictions under the Prevention of Trafficking in Persons (PTIP) Act. For many survivors and their families, justice and advocacy are an integral part of the healing process.
In order for justice to prevail, victims receive holistic aftercare services and are provided access to legal aid. Willow educates victims on their rights and empowers them with the opportunity to pursue justice through our victim advocacy program and partnerships with legal aid organizations.
Victim advocates assist survivors in navigating the criminal justice system and accompany them to court and interviews. They also work to ensure the criminal justice system is following the protocols and procedures included in the PTIP Act and Standard Operating Procedures.
