Training for Human Trafficking Advocates
San Francisco is committed to educating communities about human trafficking and commercial sexual exploitation. As a part of that, SafeHouse offers an intensive 40-hour Human Trafficking Advocate training that satisfies the training requirement for California Evidence Code 1038.2(b).
