Last year, the L.A. County Department of Children and Family Services received close to 700 referrals from people in our community to report allegations of sex trafficking of a child or youth under the age of 18 years old.  Though it is hard to believe, Los Angeles County is considered by the FBI to be one of the top areas in the nation where the sex trafficking of minors is a problem plaguing our society.


We invite community members to join us on October 23rd for free training on “The Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Children: Raising Awareness and Building a Trauma-Responsive Community of Caregivers”.  This free training will explain how any youth can easily fall prey to exploiters, show participants how to identify an at-risk or victim of Commercial Sexual Exploitation, and share, through interactive and fun activities, how to apply a trauma-responsive approach to support victims towards healing and recovery. This event will also provide information on the various ways the community can support the needs of youth that have been impacted by sex trafficking


Register by October 15 online (password: Hope4CESC) or by phone 213-765-7427 Please leave your first name, last name, agency affiliation (if applicable), phone number, and email address. 

Weekly on Wednesday's

Girls ages 11 to 18 across Los Angeles County are invited to attend the I Matter: Girls Empowerment Conference hosted by the County of Los Angeles Department of Parks and Recreation. In its fourth year, the free event provides an inspirational day that encourages girls to turn up the volume on their own voices and believe in a life of possibilities by building their confidence, exploring pathways to college, and thinking about their career goals. The event offers interactive workshops, powerful speakers, networking, and exciting lunch activities. This year’s workshops include topics such as Building Confidence through Hip-Hop, Financial Literacy, and Cyber Bullying.

Originally started in 2015 as an empowering luncheon for 75 girls, the event has grown substantially to an inspirational conference that hosts hundreds of girls each year. This year, leaders are hoping for 1,000 girls to be in attendance.

Participants must register to attend.
