    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.

    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.

    284 – Restorative Justice, with Steve Kim and Project Kinship

    284 – Restorative Justice, with Steve Kim and Project Kinship

    Sandie is joined by Steve Kim, Executive Director and Co-Founder of Project Kinship, an organization that provides services, healing, and hope to individuals who have been affected by incarceration, gangs, or violence. Steve Kim discusses what is restorative justice and their work in the Orange County collaborative courts.



    Steve Kim

    Steven Kim is the Co-Founder of Project Kinship where he serves individuals impacted by gangs and incarceration, with the aim to successfully re-integrate them back into the workforce, schools, and community. His dedication to breaking cycles of incarceration, gang membership, and community violence stems from over 15 years of working with traumatized and abandoned youth throughout Orange County.

    Key Points



    Multiple marginalization occurs when a person is marginalized in multiple aspects of their life, from resources, employment, housing, and so forth.

    A felony conviction can lead to potentially over 46,000 collateral consequences on someone's life.

    Restorative justice addresses harm through restoration of broken relationships and accountability.

    Collaboration between the Orange County Collaborative Court, Project Kinship, probation, and the district attorney's office has seen success in providing healing, resources, and reintegration to young adults.

    Serving versus saving: If we try to save people, we will burn out. But if we serve people, we walk into each day renewed and have the opportunity to be served in return.

    Key Points

    282 – Crisis Prevention of Ukraine Refugee Trafficking, with Ioana Bauer

    282 – Crisis Prevention of Ukraine Refugee Trafficking, with Ioana Bauer

    Sandie Morgan and Ioana Bauer, with eLiberare in Romania, discuss a crisis prevention model in response to the Ukrainian refugee crisis. They discuss when to prepare for a crisis and four critical components to a safe and sustainable model to address a refugee trafficking crisis.



    Ioana Bauer

    Ioana Bauer has been active in the area of protecting human rights and dignity since 2005, and, since 2010, she has dedicated her efforts to addressing human trafficking by leading and shaping prevention activities, developing materials on the issue and conducting capacity building activities. Ioana has worked directly with survivors of human trafficking and she is passionate about fighting injustice, being a firm believer in the power of community and collective action. Ioana is an Ashoka Fellow, a 2020 Resilience Fellow with GITOC, and is recognized as one of the women leaders advancing the UN SDGs globally. Currently, Ioana is serving as president of the board of eLiberare, a leading Romanian anti-trafficking CSO, after finishing her term as policy adviser in the office of the Prime Minister in the Romanian Government, where she led the working group on child safety.

    Key Points



    It is important to always prepare for a crisis intervention, never react.

    Organizations should always remember their mission and who they are, instead of trying to be everything during a crisis.

    eLiberare developed the Kompass Model, a strategy to create barriers against trafficking for refugees and displaced people in response to the Ukrainian crisis.

    4 Components of the Kompass Model:



    1) Raised awareness about safety measures for Ukrainian refugees

    2) Conducted capacity building for new stakeholders responding to the crises and for Ukrainian refugees to navigate the road ahead

    3) Developed individual safety plans for individuals vulnerable to being trafficked

    4) Provide and coordinator short-term and long-term assistance

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!
