Most of us know very little about human trafficking and sexual exploitation.  OWL’s April program sheds some light on the women caught up in its dangerous web, the help available for a way out, and recovery.  Learn about important nonprofit resources and services available, founded by women to help women in San Francisco.
Speaker: Toni Eby—CEO of SF SafeHouse for unhoused women experiencing sexual exploitation—will help us understand the complex struggles of women dealing with these issues, and what we can do to support our sisters on the streets. Among issues she will cover:

  • How sex trafficking, trauma and drugs are intertwined
  • Prevention and support for women at risk
  • Resources for help and recovery

SF SafeHouse, founded by OWL Past President Glenda Hope, operates a residential transitional housing program, as well as the Hope Center, a non-residential outreach center in the Tenderloin. SafeHouse is currently negotiating to acquire a building for permanent supportive housing, making more lifesaving services available to  women.

The Richmond branch of San Francisco Public Library, 351 9th Avenue, is half a block north of Geary Boulevard. The Local 38 MUNI line will take you to 9th and Geary, the Rapid does not stop at 9th, but will take you to either 6th Avenue or Park Presidio–sixth being the closest. The 44 line also stops at 6th and Geary. Street parking is reasonably easy within a two block radius.

All branches of SFPL are wheelchair accessible.

The community meeting room is on the ground floor. If you enter through the 9th Avenue doors, the room is downstairs. If you enter through the 10th Avenue doors, as you do so, the room is to your right.
