Help get signatures to put an initiative on the ballot that will help fight human trafficking in California.
Slated for the November 2012 California Ballot, the California Against Sexual Exploitation Act will deter traffickers with higher penalties and fines, use fines to fund victim services, remove barriers to prosecute child sex traffickers, mandate training for law enforcement officers, require convicted sex traffickers to register as sex offenders, require all sex offenders to disclose Internet accounts, and protect victims in court proceedings.
Join the team of dedicated volunteers across California to gather signatures for this monumental initiative between now and April 2012. We need all the help we can get to gather signatures.
This training will give all the information about the initiative and how to get signatures.
The Freedom Week team will need volunteers to get signatures at the Freedom Week events and welcome volunteers to join on.

Central Valley Justice Coalition is pleased to present Freedom Week 2012!
We have the privilege of partnering with co-sponsors, Central Valley Freedom Coalition, Faith.Hope.Love, EOC Sanctuary, and We Are One for this unique week to empower the community to end slavery.
During Freedom Week, we will have opportunities to gain knowledge and a greater understanding of the issue of human trafficking specifically in our own community, join with other in seeking God’s heart, and not only learn how we can join together to bring holistic and lasting change in the lives of those impacted by human trafficking and our community so that human trafficking can no longer exist, but have opportunities to take action.
We are partnering with organizations that are part of the fight in their respective fields. We are also seeking to build partnerships with churches and groups in planning and participating in Freedom Week and beyond. And we also want to partner with you, community members in the Central Valley.
We invite you to join in, tell others, and seek God’s heart together with us in how He wants to change us, our community, and the lives of others so that slavery no more will exist in the Central valley.
