Walkers will leave the Children’s Network office at 10 a.m. and head east towards Tippecanoe and back around to the starting point.

“Human trafficking and sexual exploitation of children are often thought of as only occurring in foreign countries, but it happens here and we’re all responsible for educating ourselves and others about the realities of trafficking in our own neighborhoods and communities,” said CASE Coordinator, Anne-Michelle Ellis. “Commercial sexual exploitation affects children in all parts of our county– all children are vulnerable.”

The San Bernardino County Coalition Against Sexual Exploitation formed in 2009 to address commercial sexual exploitation of children in the county. It’s a collaborative effort among child-serving county departments, service agencies and community members.

Quarterly CASE outreach & education meetings are the second Tuesday of the month. For locations or more information, contact CASE Coordinator Angel Magallanes at (909) 383-9677 or email her at

“We look forward to the community coming together and joining us in creating awareness of this important issue that impacts our community,” said Magallanes. “With each step of the walk, we take a step toward ending human trafficking and modern day slavery.”

The San Bernardino County Coalition Against Sexual Exploitation is helping the community achieve the Countywide Vision by promoting the protection of children and promoting public safety and health. Information on the Countywide Vision can be found at

2 thoughts on “Human Trafficking Awareness Walk on Saturday in San Bernardino

  1. Sexual exploitation is monstrous thing to happen, kids implied? hundred times worse! Human trafficking is something people prefer not to speak about because it is terrible and disgusting, most of us would just prefer to avoid this topic and this is exactly why movements and actions like this one are crucial to keeping things in check. I haven’t been at the Walk on Saturday, and even though there weren’t too many people, I am sure it had it’s impact. Gob bless America..

  2. Glad to see you are lpicking up on a long overdue and hidden crisis. I began my quest for awareness and actions back in 2004 2005 by 2006 I became aware of the need to expose the gross attrossities going on in our own county of San Bernardino. Soon I wasbthe target as well as my daughter and my mother of horrific hate crimes. I became fearful and had to retreat to more solitude. Living life of the grid of late yet in constant search for my now missing daughter since 2014.. One has to ask is this more backlash for my activism. She was last spoken to by me on 3/22/2014. I’ll stop here as it is far too complicated and gruelling to write about.. However, I’d like to know if the recent news in our own county regarding “Pizza Gate” arrests of 100 persons this month in connection to human trafficing. Is It glue or is it Fake News as I read last weeks news media locally had dubbed all Pizza Gate news as hype and not real fake news.. I was shocked yet only ahem I heard it had been dubbed as fake news. I know far too many facts to even call this scandal fake. It’s very real. Please advise, sincerely Penny Haskin
