Message from the Director

Human Trafficking is a criminal activity that is fueled by greed and exploits marginalized and vulnerable people right here in our backyard in Orange County and across the globe. Our work at Global Center for Women and Justice at Vanguard University depends on Research, Education, Advocacy and Collaboration to build HOPE to change the future. Our research shows that, as a society, we are not doing enough to PREVENT human trafficking. We need to come together to use our influence and connections so that we can boost the signal to protect our community and children.

The Global Center invests in the next generation of advocates who are leading in the battle whether on the frontlines as educators, parents, social workers, or criminal justice investigators. We are equipping frontline leaders locally, nationally, and globally. We are collaborating with local and national partners to strengthen our response. Help us in ending human trafficking. One voice is loud, but many echo. Thank you for joining us at Amplify to raise the volume!
