Prevention in America

This spring we’ve been very busy. Locally, in California, we’ve  shared with over 2000 people about our fight to end Human Trafficking. We are so excited that we are now having more conversations with people who say: “Yes, I know about human trafficking. How can I help?”

We encourage people to pray. We believe in prayer. Another thing we encourage people to do is to share with family and friends about human trafficking and ZOE. On our ZOE YouTube channel, we have several educational videos that we encourage people to share on their personal social media outlets. If you haven’t checked out our channel yet, I highly recommend checking it out.

Over half of the 2000 people we’ve shared with this spring were students. We’ve learned that the average entry age of sex trafficking in the U.S. are 12-14 years old. That is junior high school and high school kids. Therefore we see the importance of spreading awareness about human trafficking to high schoolers and especially having conversations with youth about social media and the importance of internet safety. We’re so grateful to have been able to share with many students.  We are especially excited about the youth and MyGenMyFight club leaders who’ve been become very close with and that have been sharing with their friends/peers. Several MyGenMyFight clubs have educated fellow students on their own school camps this spring, so the reach keeps growing. An article that came out this spring shows the importance of sharing with students: http://www.kesq.com/news/crime/hs-students-report-suspected-felon-after-human-trafficking-presentation/383074714

If you want us to come share with a school, church or community group, please contact: hanne@gozoe.org
We don’t only share within Southern California. If you live outside of Southern California and want a speaker to come to you, please reach out to us, and we can let you know how to make it happen.
