Modesto : Without Permission (Bronze)

leader: Sandy Sexton
date: April 8, 2017
time: 8am - 12:30pm

Did you know that human trafficking is often hidden in plain sight and is a form of modern day slavery? The local average age of victims served at Without Permission is 17 yrs. old. Victims of human trafficking often do not know where to turn for assistance and can be too intimidated to ask for help. Did you know that traffickers target their victims at school, malls, bus stops and social media? The I-5 corridor is a main artery for transporting trafficked victims. Did you know that education is a key to preventing sexual abuse and sex trafficking from? Without Permission has trained over 35,000 people since 2010 in the Central Valley including police, CHP, hospital and social service agencies. Senate Bill 1193 added Section 52.6 to the Civil Code. The law requires specified businesses and other establishments, as of April 1, 2013, to post a notice informing the public and victims of human trafficking of telephone hotline numbers to seek help or report unlawful activity. There are specific posting mandates, language requirements, and penalties for failure to post. The mandated notice is available on this website for downloading. Each mandated business is required to post the notice in England and Spanish. In addition, for businesses located in specific counties, a third language posting is required. The mandated posting provides victims of human trafficking with essential information on where to obtain assistance. The posting also provides critical information to the public on how to report suspected human trafficking.
