The next meeting of the North County San Diego Anti-Human Trafficking Collaborative is Thursday, March 1, 2018 at 9 am. As always the meeting is free, open to the public, and coffee and pastries will be available.
Our Guest Speaker is Trish Martinez. Martinez is a Diegueno and Yaqui Native American and is a member of the Mesa Grande Band of Mission Indians of San Diego County.
She is an integral member of the San Diego Human Trafficking/CSEC Advisory Council and has become a valuable resource for awareness in the Native communities throughout the southwest region. She was appointed to the San Diego County Advisory Council as Native Liaison.
Her advocacy achieved an international reach when she spoke at the March 2017 United Nations 61st Commission on the Status of Women: Human Trafficking in Native Country.
Trish is now part of a worldwide movement with other anti-trafficking advocacy groups focused on gender equality, decent work, economic growth, peace, justice and strong institutions.
