Event Information:

Human trafficking is a serious crime, a violation of human rights, and represents an economic cost of 800 million dollars in San Diego each year. On Saturday, January 13, the Junior League of San Diego will welcome community members and guests to its 2018 Human Trafficking Awareness Rally. The event will take place in Balboa Park at 6th Avenue and Laurel Street starting at 1:00 pm.

The Junior League of San Diego’s annual Human Trafficking Awareness Rally focuses on education regarding the myths and facts of human trafficking, recognition of the signs of victims being held captive, and awareness of how to get involved in the fight against it. The Junior League of San Diego is pleased to announce that the following distinguished speakers will offer their insights and experiences at the Rally: San Diego County District Attorney Summer Stephan, Assemblyman Brian Maienschein,Jamie Quient, and Joseph Travers. Their stories of efforts to combat human trafficking will offer a glimpse into the extent and nature of sex and labor trafficking in San Diego.

  • Human trafficking is the third largest international crime industry (behind illegal drugs and arms trafficking), reportedly generating a profit of $32 billion every year.

  • California harbors three of the FBI’s 13 highest child sex trafficking areas on the nation: Los Angeles, San Francisco and San Diego.

  • At least 110 gangs are involved in commercial exploitation of people (CSEP). 85% of pimps/sex trafficking facilitators interviewed were gang involved.
