District Attorney Dan Dow and the San Luis Obispo County Anti-Human Trafficking Task Force invites the community to a free, two-part online presentation series January 19 & 20 to learn more about the very real issue of Human Trafficking.


Today, the San Luis Obispo County Board of Supervisors proclaimed January 2021 to be Human Trafficking Awareness Month complimenting similar national and state resolutions.  To assist our community to learn more about this tragic criminal enterprise, the San Luis Obispo County District Attorney’s Office and Cal Poly’s California Cybersecurity Institute have teamed up to offer free online presentations to the community on January 19th & 20th from 11:00am – 11:45am each day.  These presentations will bring a variety of local experts together to offer information on human trafficking as well as resources for victims and survivors. 

“Human Trafficking is modern day slavery right here and we must do everything we can to eliminate it from our community,” said Dan Dow, District Attorney.  “Our SLO County Anti-Human Trafficking Task Force is making a significant impact in reducing the occurrence in our county and I am grateful for the great partnerships we have.  Please join our virtual forum to learn more.”
