Human Trafficking

Join The Fight

The Cutler-Orosi Joint Unified School District is deeply committed to prioritizing the awareness and safety of our students, staff, and community members. We recognize the pervasive threat of human trafficking, which involves the exploitation of individuals through force, fraud, or coercion for labor or commercial sex acts. This insidious crime affects millions worldwide, including within our own communities. 

Traffickers employ various tactics, such as violence, manipulation, false promises of employment, and even romantic relationships, to lure victims into their grasp. Victims come from diverse backgrounds, and traffickers prey on vulnerabilities including psychological or emotional fragility, economic hardship, and lack of social support systems. 

Awareness is key to combating human trafficking. Understanding the signs and indicators is crucial in identifying and assisting victims. However, it's essential to approach suspected cases with caution and leave investigation to law enforcement professionals to ensure the safety of both the public and potential victims.

At Cutler-Orosi Joint Unified School District, we are dedicated to providing resources and education to empower our community members to recognize and respond to human trafficking effectively. Together, we can work towards a safer, more vigilant society.
