North San Diego County Human Trafficking Collaborative Meeting

April 5, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 10:30 am

Free

The North San Diego County anti-Human Trafficking Collaborative is a diverse group of individuals and community organizations committed to eliminate human trafficking and modern day slavery. Our mission is to raise awareness of human trafficking, provide a platform to share information, improve services, educate ourselves and the public, and advocate for policy and legislation related to human trafficking.

Guest Speaker: Lisa Lindgren is a member of Soroptimist International of Mission Valley. In the fall of 2010, she was one of about 20 Soroptimists who attended a San Diego County meeting about human traffickers operating across the county, and especially in our schools. And although as a Soroptimist, she was aware of human trafficking happening across the globe, this was the first she had heard of local perpetrators preying upon our own children, girls that were only 14 to 15 years old.
She was motivated to action, and with Soroptimist members across San Diego county helped form Soroptimists Together Against Trafficking, more commonly known as STAT.
Lisa is a member of the San Diego County Human Trafficking Advisory Council and is an active member of the Council’s community committee. She regularly attends numerous forums and meetings about this issue, is often asked to speak and moderate panels.
