Anti - Human Trafficking
The Friends seeded the first Child Sex Trafficking Conference in 2013 that featured best practices, latest legislation and strategies for agencies and the community to better coordinate anti-trafficking efforts. Since then, the Friends has been a sponsor of the annual conference presented by the San Francisco Collaborative Against Human Trafficking (SFCAHT) - an organization with the support of the Mayor's Office with membership of over 30 agencies representing non-governmental organizations, government agencies, law enforement agencies, service providers, educators, and community members.
SFCAHT takes a zero tolerance stance on exploitation, violence, and human trafficking and is building a strong group of anti-trafficking advocates and experts in San Francisco.
The Friends also sponsors the annual Human Trafficking Poster Contest for teens.
Gender Equality Principles (GEP) Initiative
Launched in 2010, the Gender Equality Principles Initiative is a groundbreaking assessment program that helps organizations achieve gender equality through the implementations of the seven Gender Equality Principles.
The 100 Girls Who One Day Will Influence the World Initiative is an outreach program for girls who are interested in Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics (STEAM). Our past events include participating in the WorldWideWomen Girls Festival and hosting Tea and Conversation with the First Lady of San Francisco where we provided mentoring on STEAM related careers, public speaking and communications, finance, and etiquette to 100 girls from the Bay Area.
