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.

128: Mapping Argentina – An Interview with Father Sergio Augusto Navarro

In this episode, Director Sandra Morgan and GCWJ Board member Dave Stachowiak interview Father Sergio Augusto Navarro, while Sandie was with him in Argentina. Gilbert Contreras was the translator. Father Navarro’s research is mainly focused on human trafficking and how people of faith respond to these issues. They discuss the differences between trafficking and smuggling by separating the terminologies. Father Navarro also discusses how labor is more common in Argentina but it has become a part of normalized culture. Father Navarro shares ways to help prevent human trafficking by bringing awareness that we should not be a slave to anyone, and our faith helps us to believe that and helps other believe that as well. He desires to educate people to know that all people have rights and should demand that the justice system functions accordingly. If we believe that we are children of God, made in the image of God, then no one has the right to put power over anyone else or have the right to make someone a slave.

124: Prevention- Trauma Informed and Transformational Schools

During this episode, Sandra Morgan and Dave Stachowiak talk about how education contributes to life success, and how it can be used as a prevention tool in schools where children are dealing with different types of trauma. The idea that trauma only happens occasionally is overturned by current research brief: Unlocking the Door to Learning. Children who deal with trauma are living in a constant state of emergency with the way their body systems are functioning. How does this child function in a school setting? Their experiences in school will shape their future adult success and that is why trauma informed classrooms are so important. This research brief shows us recommended approaches for how to change the way we work with children in the classroom setting.
