Courthouse Docket

Human Trafficking in San Mateo County

On Saturday, May 14 from 10:30 am - 4 pm, Human Trafficking Awareness Day will be observed on Courthouse Square and inside the History Museum. The day will include performances, a rally, survivor art and films.

At 1p.m., there will be a panel discussion on Human Trafficking in San Mateo County: What It Is and How You Can Help in Prevention and Rescue. Human trafficking or modern-day slavery occurs across the globe and right here in our own San Mateo County neighborhoods. Speakers include:

Mike Brosnan, Anti-Trafficking Program Coordinator for San Mateo County;
Betty Ann Hagenau, Founder and Executive Director of Bay Area Anti-Trafficking Coalition;
Catherine Egli, MD, Pediatric Endocrinologist, Kaiser Permanente, Volunteer Ambassador with Shared Hope International;
Denicia Cormier, Social Worker for San Mateo County, Children and Family Services;
Regina Evans, Business Entrepreneur and Trafficking Survivor.

A reception will follow.

The Before Our Very Eyes campaign hopes Human Trafficking Awareness Day will show people what to look for and how to act in response to this injustice. Why is it called modern-day slavery? Human trafficking involves one person controlling another and exploiting him/her for work. Instead of being held by law, victims are trapped physically, psychologically, financially or emotionally by their traffickers. Very often, victims have no understanding of their right to the freedoms guaranteed to them in this country. Maintaining that ignorance benefits the traffickers. Itís happening right now and right here.
