137: Interview With Prosecutors: John Cotton Richmond & Victor Boutros

In this episode, Dr. Sandra Morgan and Dave Stachowiak introduce two previous federal prosecutors John Cotton Richmond and Victor Boutros to discuss the Human Trafficking Institute. They ask three questions that fall into anti human trafficking strategies: How do we make people less vulnerable to traffickers, how do we care for survivors, and how do we actually stop the traffickers. They both share that in order to stop it, they must start at the root of the battle. It is necessary to have an understanding of the laws and the books, political will to enforce the laws, and the capacity to enforce the law. Boutros shares that they will train specialized units to create a model of prosecutors and agents that are focused on human trafficking cases called the ACT Team. This episode challenges listeners to begin to think in innovative ways about how they can stop the crime at its source. It’s time to learn how to identity the traffickers, not just the victims, in order to be able to stop future exploitation.

136: We CAN Coalition

January is National Human Trafficking and Slavery Prevention Month. The We CAN Coalition of Orange County is all about working to end child abuse and neglect. On this show, Sandie and Dave have discussed community partnership as a key to human trafficking prevention work. We CAN Coalition is a local response model that can be replicated across the nation as a reputable way to do prevention. There are four necessary components for an effective collective: a clear common purpose, community engagement and co-production, relationships and trust, and results and accountability. For the purpose of ending human trafficking, it is imperative that people within same-minded organizations follow these components.

135: Collaborations and Ethical Decision Making

eht1400In this third part of the series on ethics and decision making, Dave, Sandie and Derek continue to explore the importance of ethics in collaborative work. Anti-human Trafficking Collaborations often happen between law enforcement, victim service providers, health care providers and centers, social service agencies, and faith-based/volunteer organizations. With all these collaborations happening to end human trafficking, ethical codes are difficult to maintain across all of these partnerships because each organization has different values and beliefs. The key is for partnerships to align their values and decide how to treat ethical dilemmas. It is imperative to share the same language among professionals to avoid conflict and confusion in collaborations.

132: Ensure Justice: Principle and Practice

The Ensure Justice Conference is GCWJ’s annual educational collaboration.  March 2017 marks the 10 year anniversary of Ensure Justice and the theme will be to “Build a Strong Child.” The question is how do we reduce the risk for kids and take preventative action against the rapidly growing industry of pornography and sex trafficking. The real secret to prevention is resiliency. To make “ensuring justice” the principle and the practice a highly valued aspect of fighting trafficking we have to make the story about resilience important. Collaboration happens at Ensure Justice when people get together to understand the value of advocating against human trafficking. Proverbs 31:8, “Be a voice for those that have no voice; ensure justice for those being crushed.” Ensure Justice conference will be focusing on building strong children in our community, around schools, and globally.

131: RAAP – Pornography: Fantasy or Reality

In this episode, Director Sandra Morgan and GCWJ Board member Dave Stachowiak discuss the link between pornography and sex trafficking. Sandie Morgan did a webinar with the Religious Alliance Against Pornography to investigate this link which is an issue that most people can agree on. Pornography drives the demand for trafficking and is closely linked to the prosperity of the sex trafficking. The genre of pornography has become increasingly more violent as the appetite of viewers has become more demanding for more variety, and younger victims. The general public needs to understand the ramifications of this type of abuse on young people, for those involved in the production and for those consuming the pornography products as a sex education resource. Pornography is NOT a victimless crime- how can we protect our children?

130: Dr. Becca Johnson – Trauma Sensitivity 

In this episode, Director Sandra Morgan and GCWJ Board member Dave Stachowiak introduce Dr. Becca Johnson who is the International program director at Rescue Freedom International. Dr. Johnson discusses the strategy of trauma sensitivity and how it is different from trauma informed. She shares that by teaching trauma sensitive care instead of just trauma informed care, she wants people to engage their hearts and empathy, not just their head. It is not enough that they just have knowledge about what trauma is and how it affects people, but that they would truly understand as much as they can from a heart level as well.

We have to ask what’s going on with the survivor’s emotions, in the thinking processes. When this is understood, it makes outreach more effective. It breaks down barriers because those helping can understand by sharing some common thoughts and feelings. To be trauma sensitive is also being culturally sensitive which leads to being more empathetic.

129: Behind the Scenes- Preparing a Community to Rescue

In this episode, Director Sandra Morgan and GCWJ Board member Dave Stachowiak introduce Alicia Zayas who is a Vanguard Alum to discuss how to prepare a community to rescue individuals from human trafficking. Alicia shares that the best way to start out in the fight against human trafficking is to become educated about these issues and to get your community involved educationally. She touches on some of the implementation pieces that are key such as the education piece and outreach by reaching out to high schools, middle schools, youth through youth prevention summits, using training presentations, and going out and training local police departments. It’s all about studying the issues, being a voice, and making a difference. Alicia played a vital role in the successful bust of a human trafficking ring in Tulare County, California in August 2016. Read about it here, and here.
