    290 – BJA Fellowship Review, with Derek Marsh

    290 – BJA Fellowship Review, with Derek Marsh

    Sandie Morgan is joined by Derek Marsh, Associate Director of the Global Center for Women and Justice. They discuss Derek's BJA Fellowship on human trafficking and how law enforcement and task forces can be more proactive in investigating and assisting labor trafficking.

    Derek Marsh, MA, MPA









    Derek Marsh retired from the Westminster PD, CA, after more than 26 years of service. In 2004, Marsh helped start the Orange County Human Trafficking Task Force (OCHTTF). He served as the co-chair of the OCHFFT from 2004-12. During that time, he developed and taught courses in human trafficking across the state of California, provided oversight to human trafficking investigations, assisted in creating HT DVDs, wrote multiple grants, and provided Congressional testimony twice as a HT expert witness. He has presented anti-HT trainings across California and the United States, Saipan, Italy, and Argentina. He taught HT as an undergraduate course at Vanguard University, CA, from 2009 to present. He develops and teaches criminal justice and human trafficking courses. He has served with the United Nations to train Rwandan immigration officials, law enforcement, prosecutors, and NGOs over four intensive seminars in 2017. He has an MA in Human Behavior, an MPA in Police Management & Leadership, and graduated from FBINA Class #224. Currently, D.C. Marsh works as the Assistant Director at the Global Center for Women and Justice. He is researching how human trafficking task forces identify, investigate, and prosecute labor trafficking cases throughout the United States through on-site visits and review of historical task force and federal performance documents. He is helping to develop and provide training and technical assistance through the BIA, TTAC, and OVC-TTAC agencies. His expertise in Criminal Justice will contribute to the research, education, and advocacy mission of the Global Center for Women and Justice.













    Key Points



    From 2015-2018, Derek Marsh was a visiting fellow with the Bureau of Justice Assistance to conduct research on human trafficking.

    Across the board, we are missing labor trafficking cases due to a lack proactive investigations.

    The history of trafficking investigations in the U.S. shows a striking shift from labor to sex trafficking in 2009.

    To successfully address labor trafficking, we need to redefine what success means.

    The goal for law enforcement and prosecution should be to seek justice and closure for victims, whether it be via a criminal or civil case.

    Building a task force that is equipped to address labor trafficking looks different than a task force to address sex trafficking.

    287 – What Can We Learn About Child Safety from a Child Abuse Investigator, with Samantha Miller

    287 – What Can We Learn About Child Safety from a Child Abuse Investigator, with Samantha Miller

The outline five preventative safety rules and seven elements for an effective child safety protocol.

She lives in Colorado with her husband and children. She can be contacted via email at Samantha@VoicesHeard.co

    Key Points



    It is normal for individuals who have experienced abuse to wait till adulthood to come forward, and it is okay to normalize that lapse in time when people finally do speak up.

    5 Body Safety Rules for Children



    1) My body is mine and belongs to me; I can say no.

    2) Develop a safety network of 5 adults a child can trust.

    3) Teach children the correct name for parts of the body

    4) Pay attention for early warning signs.

    5) It is okay to keep surprises, but not to keep secrets.





    7 Key Elements of an Effective Child Safety Protocol:



    1) Top-down support

    2) Defining key terms

    3) Screening staff and volunteers

    4) Training staff and volunteers

    5) Clear child care protocols

    6) Reporting and response process

    7) Member care

    286 – How Do We Measure Prevention, with Jeni Sorensen

    Sandie is joined by Jeni Sorensen from Poverty Action to discuss research methods and data gathering approaches to help NGO's evaluate their programs. They look at the different types of data, how to design your research, and existing tools.

    Jeni Sorensen is a human trafficking specialist with 20 years of experience designing, managing, and evaluating programs to combat human trafficking in the U.S. and around the world. Ms. Sorensen currently serves as Director of International Poverty Action’s Human Trafficking Research Initiative, which fosters partnerships between researchers and program implementers to build and carry out rigorous research studies.

Ms. Sorensen holds a BA from the University of Texas at Austin and an MPP from Georgetown University.

    Key Points



    To measure prevention impact, a theory of change and measurement of success should be identified beforehand.

    To measure trainings, identify the goal of the trainings, randomize your audience, and take a pre-test and post-test.

    Qualitative and quantitative data is important to humanize stories and this issue and to determine the efficiency of programs, respectively.

    When gathering data, be sure to only collect data on indicators you actually have time to analyze.

Excellent!

I highly recommend Ending Human Trafficking. Dr. Morgan is a global expert on the often challenging to hear but absolutely critical to be informed about topic of human trafficking. EHT will educate you on numerous aspects of human trafficking through diverse guests and always keeping the voice of those who have been trafficked at the forefront. Dr. Morgan provides evidence based resources and terminology that can help you if you are a professional in this field and perhaps more importantly as a concerned citizen, parent or caregiver. I am an advocate and supporter of Dr. Morgan’s work and this podcast. Have a listen and I think you will quickly agree!
