Your gift goes a long way to protect the children in your community from human trafficking.
Human trafficking is occurring every day across the world and right here in our own communities. There are an estimated 100,000 victims of sexual exploitation in America and there are an estimated 40 million victims of human trafficking globally. Human trafficking is a $150 billion industry and the fastest growing criminal enterprise.
3Strands Global Foundation provides human trafficking prevention education to students, educators, and community members in order to prevent the crime before it starts. 3Strands Global Foundation co-created PROTECT, a standardized prevention education curriculum, to teach students the signs and tactics of traffickers so they are able to protect themselves and others from victimization and to train educators on how to recognize when a child is at-risk of being trafficked.
PROTECT is currently being implemented in California, Utah, and Texas. 3Strands Global Foundation has co-sponsored two Bills to further advance the mission of ending human trafficking. AB 1227 (Bonta), The Human Trafficking Prevention Education and Training Act, was signed into law by Governor Brown and mandates that California public school students and staff receive training on human trafficking identification and prevention. SB 198 (Weiler) requiring school districts and charter schools to provide biennial training regarding human trafficking prevention and awareness to school personnel, parents and guardians, and students.
3Strands Global Foundation also reintegrates survivors of human trafficking and at-risk individuals by placing them in jobs in the Sacramento region. Since 2016, 3Strands Global has connected over 450 survivors of trafficking and at-risk individuals to sustainable, trauma-informed jobs and education programs in order to protect them from future exploitation. 3Strands Global Foundation also hosts the Break Free Run, a 5K/10K Run/Walk, in the Sacramento region to raise awareness and funds to combat human trafficking.
