Back to School Basics: Childproofing Our Communities from Human Trafficking

Event Dates

As our children go back into physical classrooms, social dynamics have shifted. Old friends have lost touch. New friendships were forged online. Social anxieties are intensified. Our children are likely meeting different people in person for the first time. These are great opportunities for our children to expand their friendships. They also create new opportunities for traffickers to exploit our children's weaknesses. How do we keep our kids confident and safe as they go back into schools and real-world hangouts?
