Virtual Parent Educational Workshop: Human Trafficking Prevention

The workshops focus on recognizing and preventing commercial sexual exploitation, as well as how to recognize and establish healthy relationships. The workshop will be led by Jess Torres, a leader in the movement to end human trafficking.


Many people don’t realize that human trafficking occurs in the United States with both citizen and non-citizen victims. According to the National Human Trafficking hotline, California has the highest number of human trafficking reports with the Bay Area marked as a hot spot.


Both adults and children are victims with the median age of entry for girls falling between 12-14 while boys and transgendered youth average 11-13.

Let's learn together & keep our community safe!
