How did this Pledge come about?
San Diego is one of the 13 highest sex trafficking areas in the United States, according to the FBI, and the number of trafficking victims in San Diego continues to increase every year. The REACH Coalition was created to help address this tragedy in a collaborative way. REACH stands for Recover, Empower, Advocate, Collaborate, and Heal. This task force works to identify and fill gaps in service provision throughout the County and increase the competency of service providers in the fight to combat human trafficking in our community. One of the ways we are increasing awareness is through an educational campaign for January's Human Trafficking Awareness Month.
We thank you for joining this movement alongside REACH Coalition members and Community Partners including: San Diego Human Trafficking Task Force, Bilateral Safety Corridor Coalition (BSCC), Generate Hope, La Maestra, North County LGBTQ Resource Center, San Diego LGBTQ Community Center, San Diego Youth Services, STARS and iCARE, Survivor Leader Network of San Diego, Center for Community Solutions, SANDAG, Trish Martinez, Tribal Consultant, Casa Cornelia, Free To Thrive, Alabaster Jar, FBI, Homeland Security, Local Law Enforcement, and San Diego County Child Welfare Services.
