Lauren McCabe of Westridge School (an ECSL member school) shares this opportunity to raise your students’ awareness for the critical issue of human trafficking:
Students at Westridge have been working with a coalition of local non-profits and government agencies on a youth poster contest focused on the issue of human trafficking, presenting a tangible way for students to get involved in the issue. The poster contest is designed for students ages 14 to 25. After the contest, students at Westridge will be organizing a conference/workshop that trains peers to be advocates in the implementation of SB 1193 and the posting of fliers at businesses affected by the bill. This training will take place in early February, with more information to follow as the details of the training become available. This will also be a great way for your students to get involved in the issue of human trafficking.
