In 2013, the United Nations General Assembly adopted resolution A/RES/68/192 which marks July 30 as World Day Against Trafficking in Persons as a necessary forum to “raise awareness of the situation of victims of human trafficking and for the promotion and protection of their rights.” This year, the Junior League of Orange County, CA Inc. will host its Fourth Annual Human Trafficking Roundtable (watch this space for more details).
More information will be provided soon on our event that will occur in late July, in conjunction with the United Nation’s World Day against Trafficking in Persons. Human Trafficking is a crime that spans all socioeconomic demographics, impacts many industries, and is strewn throughout the United States and California. In prior years, the Junior League of Orange County, CA Inc. has brought leaders forward to educate the community on how human trafficking has impacted the hospitality industry, the transportation industry, and legislative trends. We will continue to drive the conversation and help eradicate it from our backyard.
