Human Trafficking & The Dangers of Technology
January 22 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pmFree
According to the National Human Trafficking Hotline California has the highest number of reported human trafficking cases in the United States. With technology being used as a deceptive gateway for exploiters to recruit, sell and groom children, the time for us to combat human trafficking is now. PROTECT™ is a leading human trafficking prevention education and training program. PROTECT™ was developed by a coalition of three anti-trafficking nonprofits in partnership with the California Department of Education and the California Attorney General’s Office.
Human Trafficking & The Dangers of Technology is now available to school communities of parents, guardians, and other community members. In this session participants will accomplish these three learning objectives – Education, Awareness, and Prevention. It will provide the information and resources necessary to educate you on human trafficking and the dangers of technology.
What’s our objective? To increase knowledge of human trafficking, including labor and sex trafficking, enhance understanding of trafficking recruitment tactics and the role of technology and increase protective factors for youth and young adults throughout our communities.
