Protecting Children from Sex Trafficking
Latest trends show that children are primary targets for human trafficking in the United States. Traffickers are increasingly using the internet and social media apps to lure children and sell them to buyers. The first line of defense is to inform children and their parents on how to identify and report suspect activities.
Sharing one Love is hosting this free event for adults and children that are at least 13 years old. Participants will learn about Human Trafficking in the United States, how children can be protected from becoming victims and effective strategies on helping victims live a life of freedom from further abuse and exploitation .
The 90 minute presentation includes:
- Human Trafficking Trends in 2022
- Presentation of the trafficking prevention curriculum, "Understanding Trafficking" from FreewayNC" (you can check out the trailer below!)
- Question & answer and next action steps for our community.
FreewayNC is a FREE video-based curriculum series created to educate youth on the dangers of human trafficking. (Click on this link if video does not autoplay)
This awareness event is part of the Sharing One Love 3-fold strategy to combat sex trafficking with love. Step 1 is to protect children by spreading awareness through these free community based events. Steps 2 & 3 include conducting outreach to recognize and respond to sex trafficking and to increase opportunities for healing. Please contact us if you are interested in leaning more and to begin sharing one love in your community.
