The South Bay Coalition to End Human Trafficking's biennial Human Trafficking Conference is back with the theme "Ensuring a Trauma-Informed Approach amid Changing Landscapes." Featuring specialized human trafficking workshop tracks for victim service providers, legal service providers, law enforcement, and community outreach.
Please join us for a special luncheon in addition to our January 28 quarterly meeting in honor of Human Trafficking Awareness & Prevention Month.
Our keynote speaker will be John Vanek, a nationally renowned expert and leader in strategic anti-human trafficking efforts across the U.S. — and here in the Bay Area.
We'll also be honoring one of our most critical allies in the fight to end human trafficking here in Marin, San Rafael Police Lieutenant, Scott Eberle.
Join us September 25th for a full day conference with law enforcement, businesses, survivors, service providers and volunteers as we explore good practices and policy solutions in anti-human trafficking collaboration. Learn about effective partnerships and innovative programs aimed at eradicating modern-day slavery across the Bay Area. Share your experience and network with other professionals and volunteers fighting this heinous crime.
Youth, tweens, and teens are spotted, targeted, stalked and then lured into sex trafficking while living at home. The sex traffickers' recruitment methods are low key, practiced, smooth ... and successful. Learn what to watch for to protect those dear to you.
The coalition has scheduled an event at Marin Covenant Church auditorium to provide a forum for local human trafficking abolitionists and law enforcement experts. The event will include a screening of the documentary film, “I Am Jane Doe,” narrated by Oscar-nominated actress Jessica Chastain. The film chronicles the epic battle that several American mothers are waging on behalf of their underage daughters who were bought and sold for sexual purposes. The documentary, made to debunk the myth that this crime only happens in developing countries, raises funds to help victims of human trafficking.
Join the San Francisco Collaborative Against Human Trafficking for a full day conference with law enforcement, businesses, survivors, service providers and volunteers as we explore the impact of modern-day slavery on the industries. Learn about effective policies and innovative programs preventing the use of business venues and chains of supply for human trafficking. Exchange experience and network with other professionals and volunteers fighting this heinous crime and assisting the survivors.
Millions of people around the world are bought and sold, and the Bay Area is considered a hotspot for domestic and international human trafficking. What’s more, there is no evidence that this global issue is subsiding.
Join STOP THE TRAFFIK and partners to discuss how - together - we can stop it.
Featuring a keynote presentation from Alameda County District Attorney Nancy O’Malley, the event will bring together representatives from justice and law enforcement, business, finance, technology, government, non-profits and beyond.
