What can youth do to impact the fight to end human trafficking? Dr. Sandra Morgan and Board Member Dave Stachowiak interview Ruthi Hoffman-Hanchett, a recognized children’s rights expert who served with World Vision for eight years. She specialized in teaching children how to advocate for themselves and building communities that support education and reduce vulnerability. Ruthi now serves on the Advisory Board for GCWJ and is the Coach for Live2free, our student mobilization team. Live2Free is a group of college students who go out into the community and give peer-to-peer presentations on modern-day slavery. The students are invited to present at high schools, middle schools, conferences, and youth groups in order to help educate and prevent human trafficking in local youth. Ruthi teaches and coaches the students how to be great leaders and presenters by increasing their professionalism and confidence as they go out into the community. Tune into this issue to learn more about Ruthi’s expertise, how youth are able to engage this issue in the community, and for those right here in Orange County, how Live2Free can come to your school!

95: Human Trafficking in American Schools [PODCAST]

Ending Human Trafficking Podcast logo

On this episode of the Ending Human Trafficking Podcast, GCWJ Director Sandra Morgan and Board Member Dave Stachowiak discuss a special report written by Jenee Litrell of Grossmont Unified School District in San Diego. Litrell is adept at identifying kids who are potentially being trafficked or being groomed by traffickers. In her report, Litrell suggests methods and programs to further engage school based professionals and encourage community involvement. Anyone working with children or any environment where children are taking part in a structured activity has the opportunity to be involved.

The podcast discusses the protocols for suspicions of commercial sexual exploitation victims which involve the school resource officer, child welfare services, environment evaluation, safety issues, engaging with the victim, support services, and follow-up. The goal is to restore the victims and provide the resources and education needed to break the cycle.

91: Rescue and the Stages of Change [PODCAST]

Ending Human Trafficking Podcast logo

Rescuing victims is often simplified. If you take the person out of commercial sexual exploitation, there is an assumption and relief that they will be ok, yet it is crucial to understand there is much more to the process than just rescue. Global Center for Women and Justice Director Dr. Sandra Morgan and Board Member Dave Stachowiak discuss in this episode of the Ending Human Trafficking podcast that removing someone from exploitation is only one step in a process called Stages of Change. Stages of Change is a cycle that requires multiple steps that often take years to finally help a survivor establish a successful future. It is not only focused on the external change, but also the internal transition that a CSEC victim experiences. Tune into this episode to learn more about the six steps in the Stages of Change cycle and how to navigate the difficult path of rescue and restoration.
