We hear about human trafficking, but did you know it’s happening right here in our community? Human trafficking is occurring in our east county neighborhoods and Journey Against Exploitation (JAE) would like to help us better understand what it is and how we can respond to it.

“A Path Appears” examines human trafficking across the U.S., and highlights programs that are bringing hope to survivors and change to our neighborhoods. Hear from survivors and organizations bringing change, learn the risk factors and how you can help.

Q&A to follow with Fanny Yu: Deputy District Attorney, Juvenile Division.

 “A Path Appears”, from the creative team behind the series “Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide”, follows Pulitzer Prize-winning journalists  Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn and a group of dedicated actor/advocates to Colombia, Haiti, Kenya, and throughout the United States. They uncover the harshest forms of gender inequality, the devastating impact of poverty and the ripple effects that follow: including sex trafficking, teen-pregnancy, gender-based violence, child slavery and the effective solutions being forged to combat them.
