Time & Location
About the event
Join us for our First Annual Anti-Human Trafficking Walk for Youth! Event will be informative but also fun! We will walk to spread awareness about Human Trafficking.
Parent discretion advised for youth under 12 years old. However it’s a family friendly event!
Sylvia Lacy-Miller: Sylvia is a mother of 6 and a parent of a child who was a victim of human trafficking. Her experience with this has given her a passion to help other parents and children who find themselves in this situation.
San Bernardino County District Attorney Jason Anderson: District Attorney Anderson’s mission includes respecting and inspiring confidence in the rule of law both inside and outside the Office, collaboratively ensuring justice with excellence, integrity and compassion, stewarding public resources to hold the guilty accountable, support victims of crime, and honoring the humanity of all involved in the criminal justice system, and restoring a culture of service and accountability to the San Bernardino County District Attorney’s Office.
Cyntoia Brown-Long: Cyntoia Brown-Long is an author, speaker, and advocate for criminal justice reform and victims of trafficking. Cyntoia was trafficked during her early teenage years and, at the age of 16, was arrested for killing a man who solicited her for sex. She was tried as an adult and was sentenced to life in prison without the chance of parole for 51 years. Her trafficker was never arrested. In prison, Cyntoia’s life took a dramatic turn when the prison education principal took her under her wing and introduced her to a spiritual path. She encouraged her to build a positive life in prison and to resist the negative influences that lead to despair.
We look forward to see young there!
