Human Trafficking and the Law: Looking Through a Wider Lens @ Online
Jan 21 @ 11:30 am – 1:30 pm
Human Trafficking and the Law: Looking Through a Wider Lens @ Online

What is the role of the private sector in addressing and helping to end human trafficking? What roles do we play as attorneys in civil practice, business owners and leaders, and consumers? What role does government play and is there a place for public/private partnership and collaboration in addressing the eradication of both sex and labor trafficking? And what about the “supply chains” of goods and services – how can we work to make sure that enslaved people have not produced the food we eat and other goods and services we rely on? These questions and more will be the focus of this program. Featured Speakers, Barbara Martinez, of Holland & Knight, former Assistant U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Florida and FSU College of Law Public Interest Law Center’s Human Trafficking and Exploitation Law Project.

Approved by the Florida Bar for 2.5 hours of General CLE Certification Credits

Date: Tuesday, January 26, , 2021
Time: 6:00 p.m. Eastern Time
Presenter: James Call
Location: Wherever you are most comfortable
Masks: Optional

Log in to the January Hot Topic and hear Mayor John Dailey describe the pilot project approved by the Tallahassee City Commission to create a behavioral health crisis intervention response unit. Mayor Dailey will be assisted by Jay Reeve, Ph.D., Executive Director of Apalachee Center.

On November 10, 2020, the Tallahassee City Commission approved a contract with Apalachee Center to pilot a TEAM that would consist of a licensed mental health professional, a Tallahassee Fire Department paramedic or Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) and a Crisis Intervention Team-trained police officer. The TEAM would handle non-violent calls for service (911 calls) where there may be a mental health crisis by providing immediate medical or psychological stabilization as well as assessment, and referral for additional services.

This virtual presentation will take place on Tuesday, January 26 at 6:00 p.m. Eastern time (U.S. and Canada).

Virtual Goodwood’s Got Game Nights! @ Online
Feb 10 @ 4:30 pm – 5:30 pm

Just because we have to social distance, does not mean we have to give up socializing!  This is an opportunity to create memories through laughter and celebrate new traditions with your loved ones. Goodwood’s Got Game night is back this November, and while not all games can be played virtually, there are quite a few for number-loving and word-loving gamers that can be modified to provide some community interaction and downright virtual fun.

Test your cognitive health by exercising those brain cells with these quick-thinking games and puzzles. See if you can remember the old days by recalling popular bands of the decades or historic events, figure out movies from emojis or famous people by their silhouettes, or unscramble words you would find on a grocery list. Games will be designed to wake up and use all the parts of the mind, while also boosting our brain health through social interaction.  Please register to receive details and the Zoom program link.
