Human Trafficking Awareness

Soroptimist International of Brea/La Habra is committed to raising public awareness that human trafficking happens in all locations and all walks of life. No city or neighborhood is outside the realm of human trafficking--even in Orange County.

As part of our efforts to increase awareness of human trafficking, Soroptimist International of Brea/La Habra has an information table in the Brea Mall, every other month on the first Sunday of the month.

Soroptimist International has a voice in the United Nations that has been heard. In the United States, the first National Day of Human Trafficking Awareness launched on January 11, 2008 and is recognized each year at the UN and Soroptimist clubs throughout the country.

If you suspect an incident of trafficking in the United States, call the National Human Trafficking Resource Center's 24-hour toll-free hotline number at 888-3737-888.

To begin your journey on the awareness of this horrific global and local problem please view the video, "The Cost of Demand," from the Orange County Human Trafficking Task Force. http://ca.youtube.com/watch?v=uNOBvmDkQoE
