Program: Jim Hooks introduced today's speaker, Beth Bullock, Founder & Executive Director of Brave Choices, and Advocacy Director of R.E.A.C.H. For Tomorrow. These are organizations that work to bring awareness, education, and support to individuals in active addiction and their families. 

Beth works with local law enforcment, the Attorney General's Office, and other agencies across Ohio to develop programs to prevent substance abuse, child abuse, domestic violence, and human trafficking.

She is married to Rod Bullock, and they have four children and six grandchildren. 

Their oldest child, Robby, was lost to a heroin overdose in 2014, which is the driving force behind Beth's work and their organization, "Brave Choices."

Highlights:

  • REACH is "restoration counseling."
  • The organizations focuse on addressing drug addiction & human trafficking.
  • "To create positive change we need to BE an advocate. Being an advocate requires action. Through collaboration and partnerships we will provide training and educate, partner with communities to support their efforts to end Human Trafficking, support individuals trafficked, provide coomniyy linkage and share resources to assist service providers in Ohio."
  • Works closely with law enforcement to create an educational support system for addicts & their families
  • Started by helping them to find appropriate treatment program, but then discovered that there was a link between addiction & human trafficking.
  • Trafficking victims are 85% women, but men & children are also victims.
  • Ohio is #4 in human trafficking in the USA.
  • Approximately 40 million people are victims of trafficking across the world.
  • Shared a story of one victim who was a young boy. 
  • He met these "friends" via the on-line videogame "Fortnite."
  • Explained how "it happens all around us, but many miss the signs because they don't know what to look for."
  • Spoke of how frustrating her job can be at times. 
  • She said it can also be very rewarding.
  • Shared another story of a 7-yr old boy that they personally have taken into their home. 
  • His negative behaviors are a direct result of the trauma that he experienced due to abuse & drug use in his precious home environment.
  • Beth brought plenty of informational literature to share to teach us of what the "red-flag signs" are.
  • "Trust your intuition!" 
  • If something changes with your child or a loved one, investigate it. 
  • Watch for changes in their behaviours.
  • Often the victims don't realize that they are victims. 
  • They think the abuser "loves" them, & that the victims are doing these things willing.
  • She said the key thing is to build trust with the victims so that they will eventually call her for help. 
  • She pointed out that "the victims will not call law enforcement because they don't trust the legal system."
  • The only data they have is from those that have reported their abuse. 
  • She can only imagine how many don't call or make reports.
  • Ohio is a hotbed (of illegal activity) due to our extensive highway system, & the criminals' ability to travel easily between cities & states.
  • Revealed that the questions that kids ask her, often prove that they "know something or have seen something. They would not know to ask these questions if they didn't have information of some sort."
  • "Trauma & vulnerabilty are the key attributes that traffickers look for in a victim. 
  • They don't want someone who will fight back."
  • Criminals often watch the internet (SnapChat, Instagram, etc) for people who are vulnerable, & posting things that indicate they are unhappy. 
  • The abuser will then reach out with statements such as "I can't believe that happen to you. I'd never do that to you!"
  • Then the abusers begin to "groom" their target until they convince the target to do what the abuser instructs them to do. 
  • Thus, the target becomes a victim.
