Please join me in thanking the Center for Community Dialogue staff and volunteers who have produced a written synthesis from our collective work on January 23rd at the forum Steps to Address Sex Trafficking: Trauma & Addiction (for human service providers, educators, law enforcement, policy makers and others). During our time together that day we identified five (5) top themes to address this issue in Tucson and Southern Arizona as well as short-, medium- and long-term goals that inform next steps under each of the themes.
You may recall that the themes we prioritized during the forum included Education, Funding, Policy, Collaboration and Resources. Executing our identified next steps under each theme will be best accomplished in workgroups with a larger forum report out after each workgroup has realized benchmarks toward its goals.
Please expect five (5) separate Doodle Polls from Margarita Hallisey to determine the best time for the majority of you who wish to contribute to one or more of the five theme-based workgroups. Vote for dates and times that fit into your calendar ONLY for the group(s) in which you wish to participate.
CODAC is excited to partner with all of you to address our community’s needs in practical ways around this very important issue.
