Sacramento DA / Media / Press Release Archives / 2017 Press Release Archives / 12.14.17: DA Anne Marie Schubert Welcomes Rotary’s Partnership to Prevent Human Trafficking

District Attorney Anne Marie Schubert Welcomes
Rotary’s Partnership to Prevent Human Trafficking

The Rotary Clubs of Greater Sacramento Area (District 5180), with support from a Rotary Foundation grant and additional local funding, has secured a total of $340,000 for an educational outreach and public awareness campaign on human trafficking.  Collaborating with 3Strands Global, the Rotary will provide funding for many local elementary, middle and high schools to educate students, school administrators and teachers on the dangers of traffickers and how to avoid becoming victims.  The Rotary will also work with The Voices and Faces Project to raise public awareness about human trafficking.

“I am in full support of the Rotary’s new human trafficking initiative and its local and statewide efforts to protect the most vulnerable victims – our children,” said District Attorney Anne Marie Schubert.  “This Rotary partnership is a testament to how strong community collaborations can make a significant impact in preventing victims of human trafficking and other crimes.”

The District Attorney led coalition “Sacramento Together” also includes Rotary and other human trafficking nonprofit organizations.  The coalition meets and collaborates with law enforcement agencies to combat human trafficking and rescue victims. The District Attorney’s support of the Sacramento Regional Family Justice Center (SRFJC) is also connected to Rotary efforts.  Current Rotary Area Assistant Governor Brian Gladden is on the board of the SRFJC.
