04 Sep Long Beach Human Trafficking Taskforce Event
On September 3, 2015 Bayfront Youth and Family Services was honored to present our programs and services to the monthly meeting of The Long Beach Human Trafficking Task Force. The presentation was given by Bayfront’s own Sandra Ruiz, Head of Services and Jennifer Vachét, Senior Social Worker. Once the presentation concluded, subcommittees were formed in order to facilitate different aspects of the taskforce’s mission. Subcommittees include a 101 history of trafficking, law enforcement, shelter and direct service protection, and prevention. Bayfront is proud to be an active member of the task force.
The Long Beach Human Trafficking Task Force is a multidisciplinary, survivor-centered community collaborative consisting of law enforcement agencies and community-based organizations that work to combat human trafficking by identifying, rescuing, and empowering survivors, as well as assisting in the prosecution of traffickers. The Task Force meets monthly and is open to anyone interested in the human trafficking prevention efforts in Long Beach.
