The Legal Forum is a committee of the Sacramento Rescue and Restore Victims of Human Trafficking Coalition (“Sacramento Rescue and Restore Coalition”). The Sacramento Rescue and Restore Coalition is part of the Sacramento Rescue and Restore Victims of Human Trafficking Regional Program, funded by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. The purposes of the Regional Program are to identify human trafficking victims and connect them to services, raise public awareness, and provide training and education on human trafficking in Sacramento and seven surrounding counties.
Opening Doors, Inc. manages the Regional Program. Opening Doors works with My Sister’s House to implement the program region-wide.
The purpose of the Legal Forum is to provide a space where volunteer attorneys and other legal professionals can connect with one another, discuss challenges faced in a case, and plan how the legal community can better serve victims of human trafficking.
The Legal Forum is always looking for new members. If you are interested in joining the Legal Forum, please complete the Application to Join the Legal Forum. You do not need to be an attorney to join the Legal Forum, however there may be portions of meetings where non-attorneys may be asked to leave so that the attorneys can discuss sensitive issues pertaining to a case.
For attorneys interested in providing pro bono legal services to human trafficking victims, please complete both the Application to Join the Legal Forum as well as the Volunteer Pro Bono Attorney Application Forum.
