On this episode of the Ending Human Trafficking Podcast, GCWJ Director Sandra Morgan and Board Member Dave Stachowiak discuss a special report written by Jenee Litrell of Grossmont Unified School District in San Diego. Litrell is adept at identifying kids who are potentially being trafficked or being groomed by traffickers. In her report, Litrell suggests methods and programs to further engage school based professionals and encourage community involvement. Anyone working with children or any environment where children are taking part in a structured activity has the opportunity to be involved.
The podcast discusses the protocols for suspicions of commercial sexual exploitation victims which involve the school resource officer, child welfare services, environment evaluation, safety issues, engaging with the victim, support services, and follow-up. The goal is to restore the victims and provide the resources and education needed to break the cycle.
