JULY Forum:

We hear about child sex trafficking in other parts of the US or overseas in other countries. But did you know it happens here in our community?

Dennis Morrow, the executive director of Janus Youth Programs in Portland will be speaking about child victims of sexual trafficking in Oregon. Dennis  will discuss the current state of trafficking across the state and locally, how children end up being pimped, the challenge of treating child victims and the struggle to keep them from returning to that life.

This is not a pleasant topic but increasing public awareness of it, and alerting people about how they can contribute to ending it, is a role City Club believes is part of its mission to encourage positive change in Central Oregon.

About Dennis Morrow: As the executive director of Janus Youth Programs since 1980, Dennis Morrow has been a leader in Oregon trying to address this issue. Janus operates over 40 different programs for high-risk adolescents, teen parents and young adults at 21 locations in Oregon and Southwest Washington. He will speak to all aspects of this problem from the recruiting of children, the pimps and Johns, efforts to stop the trade and why it is so hard to help these young victims as they grapple with improving their lives. Janus offers a multitude of services from counseling, shelter, transitional housing and the coordination of services needed to help this population. Mr. Morrow has an M.A.Ed. and MBA, teaches at PSU and is a sought-after speaker nationally on youth issues.
