Next Meeting, Jan-26-2023: Joanne Tremelling - Soropomists' Coordinator of Aid to Victims of trafficking

Joanne Tremelling will tell us about the anti-trafficking and victim aid programs of Soroptimist International. She did her undergraduate studies at UCD and then entered the Masters of Social Work (Health Concentration) program at Sacramento State. She is married with two children and four grandchildren.

She became a Soroptimist in 2005, the year she retired after working at ACRC for 25 years.  She is currently a member of the Soroptimist Club of Folsom/ El Dorado Hills acting as the Anti-Trafficking Coordinator for Soroptimist International of the Sierra Nevada Region, concentrating on El Dorado, Placer, Sacramento, and Yolo Counties. She chaired the Stop Trafficking Symposium in March of 2011, after learning that children in our region were being abducted and forced into prostitution.  She is currently a member of the Sacramento Together Coalition established by the Sacramento County District Attorney.

Last Meeting: Jan-19-2023: Kaitlyn DeCicco- 3 Strands, a Global Organization for Freedom
Kaitlyn DeCicco substituted as speaker for Ashley Bryant, CEO of 3 Strands Global Foundation.  Kaitlyn did her masters thesis on human trafficking in collaboration with 3Strands.  She has been with the foundation since 2018.  
The motto of 3Strands Global Foundation is "We exist to prevent human trafficking."  To illustrate how close to home this issue is, Kaitlyn told us that a 13-year old girl was captured and trafficked from the theatre in El Dorado Hills.  As of 2020, the following statistics indicate the magnitude of the problem:  "There are at least 100K boys and girls exploited and sold in the US.  Of these victims, 81% are trapped into forced labor, 75% are female, and 25% are children.  3Strands has programs in three areas to address the problem:
• Education
• Employment
• Engagement
PROTECT is the name of the main education program. It is an age-appropriate curriculum for kids in K-12 grades along with training and materials for the school's staff, including a way to measure the impact in every community.  The PROTECT program was co-founded in 2015 by three groups: 3StrandsGF, the Frederick Douglass Family Initiative, and Love Never Fails.
To address "Employent and Engagement", the Employ + Empower (E+E) program matches up Case Workers and Social Workers with individuals to first understand their physical, mental, and emotional needs...
