Outreach and Awareness Committee

The Outreach & Awareness subcommittee of the Arizona Human Trafficking Council works to expand public awareness through community presentations, outreach materials, public service announcements and community engagement. Through a shared community understanding created by public awareness efforts, every citizen can aid in identifying trafficking victims and can help create safe and accepting avenues for victims to disclose abuse.

2018 Highlights

During 2018, the subcommittee reached over 600 new stakeholders including Tribal Communities and high school students. Some highlights of the work include:

● a three day human trafficking training for staff at three casinos on the Navajo Nation (Flagstaff, Holbrook and Farmington, New Mexico);
● participation in the 2018 Summit on Human Dignity, which educated 300 Brophy College Preparatory students on human trafficking;
● Chair Gary McCarthy attended the quarterly Arizona Human Trafficking Intel Network Meetings hosted by the Arizona Department of Public Safety;
● participation in the “Kids at Hope” training for the Yuma County Probation Department;
● the Arizona Attorney General hosted Truckers Against Trafficking where the subcommittee presented to approximately 60 people; and
● presenting to social service workers, city employees, faith-based individuals, school employees and county officials at the Pinal County Social Services Network Meeting.
