Great program today by educating the club to sex trafficking problem in San Diego and other parts of the country. Rachel Devine has been involved in the fight against sex trafficking for 6 years. She earned her degree in International Studies and Political Science from Point Loma Nazarene, and focuses on international human rights issues, specifically forms of oppression against women, all around the globe. She's traveled to 10 countries and has worked with many different non-profit organizations in Asia, Africa, and here in San Diego - all focusing on sex trafficking rehabilitation. She has been working with GenerateHope for a year and a half and is excited about the powerful work being done in her local community.  San Diego is the 8th worse U.S. city for sex trafficking with an estimated 3000 to 5000 victims today.
