Human Trafficking Poster Campaign
In January 2016 Contra Costa County’s Zero Tolerance for Domestic Violence Initiative and the District Attorney’s Office launched a two-pronged human trafficking poster campaign aimed at raising awareness about human trafficking county-wide. The “Human Trafficking is Real” poster was initiated again this year targeting high traffic commute areas. Contra Costa County SB1193 posters will be launched, targeting both commute systems (e.g., BART/buses) and business owners.
Victims of Crime Comprehensive Services for Victims of Human Trafficking Grant
In 2013 Contra Costa County’s Zero Tolerance for Domestic Violence Initiative (ZT) was awarded the Comprehensive Services for Victims of Human Trafficking grant through the Office for Victims of Crime (OVC). ZT was awarded this grant again in 2015. The grant focuses on supporting the delivery and development of a continuum of coordinated services for victims of human trafficking in Contra Costa County. For this grant, ZT partnered with 13 agencies in Contra Costa County to ensure all services for victims of human trafficking were covered, coordinated and connected. Partners include law enforcement, the District Attorney’s office, other legal service agencies, probation, and a wide range of service providers. Grant goals include:
- Increasing the number of victims identified
- Increasing the number of services provided to victims
- Increasing the number of professionals trained about human trafficking
- Increasing collaboration and coordination of services
This grant has paved the way for more comprehensive data collection and system of care development. Want more information about our grant efforts? Contact Alex Madsen at firstname.lastname@example.org
