STELLIUM will support PROTECT initiatives to reduce the vulnerability of children against human trafficking and exploitation by donating a fair portion of the sales incurred through the events, pop up shops and other retail ventures.
The California Attorney General’s office is partnering with three nonprofit organizations to tackle the pervasive issue of human trafficking. The group is working on three key aspects of victim identification and prevention: 1) Model protocols for reporting and serving students that are identified as victims or potential victims of human trafficking; 2) Training initiatives for professionals working with children who have been or could be victimized; and, 3) Developing classroom curricula to teach students about the dangers and methods of human traffickers, to encourage self-identification, to prevent children from becoming victims and to empower them to be modern abolitionists.
