ENGAGE WITH AND TRAIN LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICIALS
Currently, Greenlight Operation is working to build relationships with law enforcement officials in the Central Pennsylvania Region. Greenlight Operation will create a training curriculum for law enforcement officials by January 1, 2020 and collaborate with law enforcement officials on rescuing victims and utilizing data/research to inform court cases.
2. ENGAGE WITH LAWMAKERS
In October 2018, Pennsylvania SB 554 (Act No. 130 of 2018) became law. This Safe Harbor Law protects minors who are victims of human trafficking from being prosecuted for crimes they were forced to commit. Greenlight Operation continues building relationships to provide resources to lawmakers and their constituents on policies impacting trafficking victims. The Greenlight Operation team currently works with constituents informing them about ways they can get involved with the law making process.
By December 31, 2019, the Greenlight Operation team will offer research and experience to legislators on state policies with a strong network of legislators that recognize the work and utilize the services.
3. ESTABLISH STATEWIDE COALITION
Greenlight Operation is currently collaborating with similar organizations who are passionate about ending slavery. Greenlight Operation has a goal of creating a statewide coalition that works together to combat human trafficking and combine resources to ensure victims are properly served and rehabilitated.
By December 31, 2021, an anti-human trafficking coalition will be launched in Dauphin County and expand county by county across the state.
4. GROW NETWORK OF ENGAGED VOLUNTEERS
Currently, Greenlight Operation has an administrative team of volunteers, consisting of an Executive Director, Marketing Coordinator, Community Relations Coordinator and Fundraising Coordinator. The number of active volunteers has risen since our launch in May of 2018. Our goal is to continue growing each team so we can expand our efforts.
