Human trafficking, an abhorrent crime, has infiltrated all 50 states, even our schools, where students are at risk. The post-pandemic era witnessed a surge in the distribution of child sexual abuse material, exploitation, and human trafficking, necessitating our immediate attention. Schools, traditionally safe havens for children, are best suited to combat this issue through prevention education.
In the past year, 13 states mandated training for school staff and awareness education for students on human trafficking. We invite you to learn from those who have successfully implemented prevention education in their districts. This edWeb podcast empowers you to recognize human trafficking, understand vital terminology, overcome potential barriers to identifying exploitation, and embrace trauma-informed responses. We also explore behavioral signs in students, red flags, and the significance of protocols, training, and implementation for success within our school communities.
Leading this expert panel is Ashlie Bryant, CEO and Co-founder of 3Strands Global Foundation. She’s joined by Monica Dominguez, Coordinator of School Counseling at Socorro ISD, Charisma De Los Reyes, Program Manager at the San Diego County Office of Education, and Cynthia Cook, Education Manager at 3Strands. Join us in safeguarding our schools and protecting our children.
This edWeb podcast is of interest to K-12 teachers, school counselors, and school and district leaders.3Strands Global Foundation
