An awareness event against human trafficking will be held during “A Day of Action” across the Coachella Valley.
The event will take place Saturday at 9:00 a.m.
During the “Day of Action,” dozens of volunteers will fan out across Riverside County, educating business owners and distributing a limited quantity of pre-printed notices on slavery and human trafficking.
In September of 2012, California Governor Jerry Brown signed Senate Bill 1193 into law.
The recently enacted legislation requires certain types of businesses to display human trafficking notices near the public entrance or in a location in plain view of both the public and employees.
Operation SafeHouse is seeking interested volunteers to assist with this outreach effort. Due to Riverside County’s large size, three staging areas for volunteers have been established:
Coachella Valley – Southwest Community Church. 44-175 Washington Street, Indian Wells
Riverside area – Operation SafeHouse. 9685 Hayes Street, Riverside
Murrieta/Temecula/Lake Elsinore – Calvary Murrieta Church, 24225 Monroe Ave., Murrieta
The following online sign-up sheets are available to provide additional information as well as sign up to participate in this event:
