Guest Speaker: Russell Wilson

Russell spent his first nine years as a gypsy/carny, traveling up and down the state with his mother — who worked at the Renaissance Pleasure Faire. Russell’s mother would sell him to pedophiles to pay for her drug habit or other necessities. By the time Russell was nine years old, parental responsibilities had become too much for Russell’s mother, and she abandoned him leaving him to fend for himself to navigate the foster care system, only to return intermittently, forcing him to relive the trauma of his abandonment each time.

Russell is currently a student at Golden Gate University School of Law and recently graduated from the University of California, Berkeley with a degree in Anthropology and South & Southeast Asian Studies. As a Ronald E. McNair Scholar, Russell completed a research project in Cambodia looking at the factors of resiliency for male survivors of commercial sexual exploitation.

2017 Nonprofit of the Year

The 2nd Annual California Nonprofits Day was held on June 28, 2017. Nearly 100 California nonprofit organizations from around the state that have been selected by legislators as their Nonprofits of the Year were be recognized at a luncheon event at the Sacramento Convention Center.
Without Permission Inc. was selected by Assemblyman Heath Flora of the 12th Assembly District which represents parts of both San Joaquin and Stanislaus Counties.

Thank you to all of our volunteers and staff members at Without Permission. Your impact to our community has helped change the lives of hundreds families affected by trafficking!

SB1322 : Commercial Sex Acts and Children

 New California Law SB1322: Commercial Sex Acts and Children

In January, SB 1322 went into effect. This controversial bill changed the way minors involved in trafficking are treated under the law. Selling or buying a minor for sex is still illegal, but the children being sold are no longer committing a crime.

There was a lot of discussion about this bill, and many mixed reviews of its potential effects. Supporters want to see trafficked minors treated as victims and not further stigmatized as criminals or prostitutes when they are actually the victims of exploitation. SB1322 channels victimized children through the welfare/dependency system instead of the criminal justice system for services.

Detractors are concerned that the welfare system is already overburdened and unable to handle this population. They worry that law enforcement won’t have the leverage they need to prosecute pimps without having the victims in custody.

This legislation and the issues involved are complex enough that a national leader on human trafficking issues, District Attorney Nancy O’Malley from Alameda County, originally opposed and later supported SB1322.

In an effort to help those of you who want to read more about this recent change in law, here are some more articles with different perspectives.
