TraffickStop is educational endeavor and serves as connector for community organizations that focus on human trafficking in the U.S. context. We are a MANGO - not a food source - read on...
Many trainings are focused on Domestic Minor Sex Trafficking also known as Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Children.
The work brokers information across various disciplines focusing on prevention of sexual abuse, intervention techniques, education and awareness of the related issues, and the need for restorative care for victims.
This fills a unique niche of bridging for NGO’s, medical professionals, service providers, educators, homeless networks, and others to law enforcement as well as governmental agencies.
The kind of specialty provided through this type of educational initiative was identified in a recent publication of the Law Enforcement Executive Forum, Vol. 12, No.1, March 2012 by John Vanek and Kirsten Foot. (http://traccc.gmu.edu/pdfs/Law_Enforcement_Executive_Forum.pdf#page=8 )
“… increasing societal awareness of human trafficking over the last few years is both due to and resulting in the growth of a different type of NGO: those focused on mobilizing citizens against human trafficking and on (mostly) local and state-level advocacy for stronger anti-trafficking laws and better services for trafficking victims. These mobilization/advocacy NGOs (MANGOs) rarely if ever provide direct services for victims and, thus, may not have any direct contact with law enforcement or other government entities.
Additionally, services are available as a technical trainer for the Office of Victims of Crime and TCLEOSE certified instructor for Texas Law Enforcement.
