84 – Be The 1 – Human Trafficking Awareness Campaign

The Orange County Human Trafficking Task Force is an outstanding example community collaboration to bring awareness and work to fight human trafficking in their local community. In August 2014, OCHTTF launched a campaign in partnership with the Orange County Transportation Authority (OCTA) called Be the 1 Human Trafficking Awareness Campaign. The Be The 1 campaign developed opportunities to not only provide resources in advertising spaces on the inside and outside of OCTA’s buses, but also provide training for drivers on the signs of human trafficking. Tune into this episode to hear Dr. Sandra Morgan and Dave Stachowiak interview CSP, Inc. Program Director Lita Mercado on topics including the launch of the Be The 1 Human Trafficking Awareness Campaign, OCHTTF’s collaboration model, and the importance of building and maintaining healthy partnerships in order to fight human trafficking in the community.
