WHAT IT'S LIKE TO WORK WITH COLORADO'S HUMAN TRAFFICKING HOTLINE

I like knowing that I am a resource for both survivors who may call the hotline, as well as for the advocates who are volunteering their time for the hotline. I also feel like it’s a great way to continue my own education of this crime, and put my advocacy for social justice to work.

—Jen Jachimiec, Hotline Backup Manager and Pediatric Nurse Educator

I have seen the state of Colorado begin to address human trafficking through meaningful collaborations between systems-based and community-based organizations in various communities. As the issue of human trafficking does not often receive the accurate representation in media and community support it deserves, my motivation drives me to continue to establish partnerships while providing community outreach and education to bring additional visibility to our fight.

—Nhu-Minh Le, Asian Pacific Development Center, Hotline Referral Partner

It is never lost on me how immensely challenging it can be to reach out and ask for help, so there is a level of responsibility that comes along with being the first point of contact for someone who has summoned the courage to do so. I am passionate about ensuring those initial interactions are positive ones that facilitate connection, foster trust and cultivate the hope and strength necessary to take another small step forward.
