November is Native American Heritage Month in the United States. Honor this month by learning about how human and labor trafficking affects Native American communities, particularly women.
H.E.A.T. Watch is anti-human trafficking organization that is working towards ending trafficking exploitation in the Bay Area.
We are structured through a five-point strategy system, designed to end human trafficking. Our strategy includes raising community awareness, training law enforcement, aggressively prosecuting offenders, coordinating existing services and promoting sustainable policy chances.
By combining these five successful strategies, we provide materials and expert resources as well as technical assistance through strong and effective partnerships and communication. We engage the community, protect victims, enhance efforts to investigate and prosecute their traffickers, and stop human exploitation and trafficking.
The mission of H.E.A.T. Watch is to develop an effective comprehensive, collaborative, and regional response to human trafficking of all forms; to provide tools, education, and community engagement to change societal, legal, and institutional approaches; and to support victims and hold their offenders accountable.
