DA’s Office Participates in National “Wear Blue” Day to Promote Human Trafficking Awareness

by ECT

Martinez, Calif. – Contra Costa County District Attorney Diana Becton joined members of the DA’s Office Contra Costa Human Trafficking Taskforce to participate in the national “Wear Blue” initiative to promote Human Trafficking Awareness Month.

Images of staff members with the DA’s Office wearing blue will be shared on our office’s social media accounts with the Contra Costa County hashtag “ContraCostaWearsBlue.” Multiple agencies and individuals will be sharing images today with this hashtag to share solidarity with human trafficking victims.

A huge part of exploitation is convincing our trafficking victims that no one cares about them or what is happening to them. This helps to isolate victims and make them more reliant on an exploiter if they come to believe that the exploiter is “the only one” who cares.

“The DA’s Office wants to underscore we care about all our victims, have services and support right here in our community and will look to hold exploiters accountable,” said DA Becton.

If you or someone you know has information regarding any acts or suspicions of human trafficking, please call the Contra Costa County Human Trafficking tip line maintained by the District Attorney’s Office: 925-957-8658.

Local resources include Community Violence Solutions 24-hour resources line (800-670-7273) and Contra Costa’s Family Justice Center (925) 521-6366). To report suspected exploitation of youth, call the CFS/Child Abuse Hotline at 1-877-881-1116.

Contra Costa County was awarded a federal grant in October 2018 to form a Human Trafficking Taskforce. The taskforce has state, federal and local law enforcement partners and prosecutors that collaborates with local community service providers to provide victims with culturally competent services and support while investigating and prosecuting cases involving sex trafficking, labor trafficking and related crimes of exploitation.

I’m going to pretend they’re wearing blue to support law enforcement.

You know that you far-Right neocons only keep repeating the name “George Soros” like a bunch of trained parrots because he’s Jewish and because he’s rich. The guy helped defeat communism in Eastern Europe decades back for crying out loud. It’s just a white supremacist habit to use the guy as a scapegoat. Maybe you should get your anti-semitism checked before it evolves into full blown idiocy.

George Soros is a Hungarian billionaire who hates the United States and for some reason wishes its downfall. He knows the only way to do that is to get it’s natives (blacks) riled up. Pastor? Maynard, you should get your information from some place other than google and wikipedia. You won’t because your a far left woketard and a cancel piece of crap.

Honey20, Your superior facts regurgitated straight from Alex Jones’ diary are too difficult to compete with. It definitely sounds like a good time to hang up mama’s confederate flag and stop playing army with all your prepper buddies. Maybe get some fresh air? You’re embarrassing all of us. Maybe get your thinking from somewhere else other than Info Wars. I think the tinfoil hat and belt around your neck are twisting your logic.
