Our 2021 Plans
Community Awareness Events: We plan to provide education and partner with organizations at local events throughout the year.
Educate Students: We are working to get the A21 Common Core approved curriculum into our local high schools so we can empower our youth and prevent them from becoming a victim of human trafficking.
Educate Businesses: Each year we reach out to businesses in our community and provide opportunity to educate them on human trafficking. Whether in-person or virtual, we are working to spread awareness with business professionals to know the truth and the signs about human trafficking.
Collaborate: The heart of our organization is to work with local agencies, organizations, and officials so that we can make a bigger impact in our community and state. We have partnered with Walsh University, PATHS, Stark County Juvenile Task Force, and A21.
