Human Trafficking – Soroptimist International of Long Beach supports the efforts of the Long Beach Human Trafficking Task Force to increase awareness and prevention of human trafficking and support services for survivors. The survivors of human trafficking escape their handlers with nothing. To alleviate their loss, on Wednesday, January 25, 2017, Soroptimists met and filled 27 back packs for the survivors. In addition to toiletries and personal items packaged in beautiful cosmetic bags, we Included a change of clothing: under ware, socks, yoga pants, a T-shirt, a fleece jacket and flip flops. For comfort we included a small blanket, a journal and pen, an adult coloring book with color pens, and a message of caring.
