Action Guide: Trafficking Prevention for LGBTQ+ Communities in San Diego

Polaris’s Strategic Initiative on Sex Trafficking focuses on 25 U.S. cities and has three program leverage areas: shifting legal accountability for trafficking, changing norms around sex buying, and expanding social safety nets for vulnerable populations. The safety net expansion initiative (SNEI) is designed to prevent trafficking before it happens. Studies have shown that some populations are disproportionately represented among sex trafficking victims – people of color, immigrants, youth and LGBTQ+ community members, for example.

For San Diego, one of our initial focus cities under the initiative, we created this action guide with and for local stakeholders to help prevent trafficking of the local LGBTQ+ community.
