On Tuesday, April 13 2021, our lunch program speakers will be Mel Parker and Sara Perkins from J Bar J. They’ll be giving a presentation on J Bar J’s at: (anti-trafficking) Project.
They work directly with victims to help them regain independence, safety, and stability, and to rebuild their lives. They provide comprehensive case management and crisis intervention, assist in creating safety plans, as well as offering much needed emotional support to survivors of sex and labor trafficking. Their case managers also work with survivors to access community resources such as psychological counseling, medical care, emergency housing, transportation, and academic needs.
They provide team coordination for the Deschutes County Commercially Sexually Exploited Children (CSEC) Response Team, the group responsible for responding to cases of human trafficking in Central Oregon. This team is a collaboration of agencies working together to coordinate and leverage resources to provide a comprehensive approach to child sex trafficking and services to victims and survivors.
