Understanding Human Trafficking, #DoSomethingLHTTF Video
Do you desire to bring human trafficking awareness to your school? As you know, education is power. We developed a video and curriculum to use in schools. We strongly believe that by educating students on human trafficking, victims will be prevented, the demand will decrease, students will make wiser choices, and those who have been exploited will get the help they so desperately need.
The Understanding Human Trafficking, #DoSomethingLHTTF video can be used to play during a school wide assembly or in a classroom. Our program is targeted for Middle and High School students in Michigan. You may be thinking, “Isn’t this a heavy topic for Middle School students?” Sadly, trafficking can happen to those as young as 11 years old and even younger. The Hope Project in Muskegon has worked with survivors of sex trafficking this age. In fact, The Hope Project has worked with many youth in West Michigan who were victims of sex trafficking. And yes, they were and are attending our schools.
LHTTF has also created an Educator Toolkit to go along with this video that contains a video for educators, handouts, discussion points, and activities.
