What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Human trafficking is a form of modern-day slavery where people profit from the control and exploitation of others. As defined under U.S. federal law, victims of human trafficking include children involved in the sex trade, adults age 18 or over who are coerced or deceived into commercial sex acts, and anyone forced into different forms of “labor or services," such as domestic workers held in a home, or farm-workers forced to labor against their will.

The factors that each of these situations has in common are elements of force, fraud, or coercion that are used to control people. Then, that control is tied to inducing someone into commercial sex acts, or labor or services. Every year, human traffickers generate billions of dollars in profits by victimizing millions of people around the world, and here in the United States. Human trafficking is considered to be one of the fastest growing criminal industries in the world and the second largest.

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Youth Programs

We offer two extended programs (written by My Life My Choice and Love146) as well as several one time workshops created entirely by our staff team.

Programs:
My Life My Choice is an evidence-based prevention curriculum that provides a concrete, well-researched method for preventing commercial sexual exploitation among vulnerable adolescent girls.

My Life My Choice groups can be offered weekly in schools, group homes, and other community settings.

We also are certified facilitators of Not a Number, a prevention program for boys and girls ages 12-18.

Population(s) Served

We offer a variety of human trafficking prevention education classes. The classes range from three to six hours long and are for ages 16 and older.
Participants receive a certification of completion, take a pre-test and post-test, and our workshops are eligible for CEU's through Fresno Pacific University.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Central Valley Justice Coalition is a faith-based non-profit organization made up of churches, agencies, and passionate individuals who are responding to God's heart for justice to prevent human trafficking in California's Central Valley.

Our mission is to partner with the church and community to prevent human trafficking.

Prevention:

We believe education is the first step in preventing and intervening in human trafficking.

We see many instances in which human trafficking is preventable, and strive to model and teach a way of life that keeps men, women, and children from being bought and sold as commodities.

Partnership:

We believe in partnership with God and each other, and in doing the work of the good news where there is oppression in the form of human trafficking and related forms of modern day slavery.

We partner in God's work to seek justice and reconciliation so that the church and community can live fully in all we are called to be.

We partner with any group, individual or organization seeking to address human trafficking through unified collaboration and a victim-centered approach.

We engage with groups in the community, including law enforcement, NGO's, churches, social clubs, and businesses. We recognize we cannot fight injustice well on our own, and call others to collaboration and unity as we all find our place in fighting for justice. We partner with any group, individual or organization seeking to address human trafficking through unified collaboration and a victim-centered approach.

We are an organization with a dedicated board, well-trained staff, diversified support network and dozens of committed volunteers. As our network expands our impact will continue to grow.

Between January 2016 and December 2016 we held 71 presentations/trainings where 3,631 people had access to education on human trafficking. These were members of the general public from all walks of life. Through our My Life My Choice prevention classes we served 55 at-risk girls aged 12 to 18 of which 12 young ladies identified as underage victims of commercial sexual exploitation. 112 people completed our Human Trafficking 101 training course and we resourced 120 victims/advocates/survivors all in 2016.
