The issue of human trafficking is one of the most unifying issues of our time- and it is the fastest growing crime. The Not in My City, Not in My State Campaign brings people together in agreement. It is a multi-city movement being developed to engage local communities who want to use their time, talent and treasure to fight the issue of human trafficking.
Human trafficking- which includes sex trafficking of minors- negatively affects many communities, and Sacramento is no exception. Community leaders and activists have come together and Sacramento is now leading the fight to combat human trafficking. Sacramento is positioned to lead the nation in taking back our CITY and county and restore our reputation as a city effectively working together to end human trafficking in all forms.
The goal for 2016 is to bring momentum to this campaign on National Human Trafficking Awareness Day — January 11, 2016 and engage these sectors to come together: Law-enforcement, community and government leaders, faith based groups, businesses, schools, non-profits and more. Anyone wanting to declare, “It is wrong for human beings to be exploited in any form- and for children to be sold for sex.” We will do this by securing city proclamations, starting with Sacramento and its surrounding cities, and our desire is for this to spread nationwide.
