Human trafficking is a very real problem. An estimated 27 million people are living in slavery worldwide. 80% of the victims are women and girls and a staggering half of the victims are children.
The facts about human trafficking are staggering, but the numbers alone cannot fully convey the heartbreaking experiences of victims who are exploited and mistreated every day in the
greater Sacramento region. The reality is that the intersection of major highways and interstates makes our region a hub for trafficking.
With increased awareness, we can all play an increasingly prominent role in identifying, responding to, and supporting victims of trafficking. WEAVE is part of a community-wide
collaborative working responding to human trafficking through the Rescue & Restore Coalition.
WEAVE and our community partners need help to combat human trafficking. WEAVE offers an one-hour presentation that provides participants with helpful information, practical
tools, and useful printed materials which enable them to effective respond if they encounter a victim of trafficking. The training is available at no cost. At the conclusion of the presentation, each participant will understand the issues of human trafficking, know how to identify victims of human trafficking, and understand the many resources available to trafficking
If anyone in the Sacramento region would like to have a presentation about human trafficking, please contact Rodger Freeman, Prevention and Education Supervisor at 916.319.4927, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
