Junior League of San Diego's fourth annual Human Trafficking Rally will focus on human trafficking on a local level; specifically, the rally will highlight how we can see the signs of those currently held captive. As a community leader, you may one day have the opportunity to identify and assist a victim of human trafficking, if you “Know the Signs.”

Featured speakers, who are at the forefront of sex trafficking prevention, will provide various perspectives on human trafficking awareness and prevention:

  • Congresswoman Susan Davis
  • Summer Stephan, Chief Deputy District Attorney San Diego County
  • Michelle Shoemaker, Director, Churches Against Trafficking
  • Dr. Jennifer Prager, Director, Victims Counseling Services
  • Bettina Hausmann President and CEO United Nations Association San Diego
  • Christina Marzocca, Women's Equity Council
  • Anne Hoiberg, San Diego Trafficking Advisory Council
  • Susan Muncey, Director, Generate Hope

Attendees will discover how local companies ensure there is no association with human trafficking in its operations or supply chains and how companies can support trafficking-free labor.

Overall, the purpose of the event is to march, listen, and learn together to raise awareness about human trafficking in the San Diego region, as well as to empower community members with information on how to "Know the Signs" for both sex and labor trafficking.
