Joelle Gomez joined the staff of the San Joaquin Women's Center in 1992. Though she did not have a background working in centers, she "fell into" the job and came in as the development director.

Gomez now serves as the center's executive director and said she couldn't imagine doing anything else. She is amazed at the transitions that occur when someone reaches out to the center.

    There was a brief mention of a Stop Human Trafficking Workshop in Lodi but no date or location. Soroptimist International of Lodi and Lodi Sunrise, along with the Lodi branches of AAUW, BPW, Salvation Army and the Women’s Center are sponsoring the free workshop to “Stop Human Trafficking” on March 5, 2011, 9:30 to noon at the Temple Baptist Church on Lower Sacramento Road. The program speaker is Kay Buck, Executive Director of the Coalition to Abolish Slavery and Trafficking (CAST), based in Los Angeles. The mission of CAST is to assist persons trafficked for the purpose of forced labor and slavery and to work toward ending all instances of such human rights violations. The workshop is intended to instill knowledge in the public, promote advocacy for victim’s rights, and draw the community to action. Come and learn what you can do to help stop the violent trade in human lives.
