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. Yes, we need an ambulance at the bottom of the cliff to rescue those who fall; but we also need to be building a fence to protect our community and our children.
The Global Center is investing 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. Do you see the trend? We are doing this. We can all do something.
Thank you for joining us!!
