West Campus senior organizes awareness campaign on human trafficking

e-Connections Post

West Campus High School senior Natali Perez recently organized an event for fellow students to promote awareness of human trafficking issues.

Perez worked with volunteers who agreed to apply makeup, simulating cuts and bruises, as abuse is often the result of human trafficking. The volunteers also wore signs that contained a story (written by Perez) about a fictional abuse victim.

During the lunch hour a guest speaker for Run for Courage came to West Campus to present on the issue of human trafficking, warning signs and how to be aware of situations that may lead to human trafficking.
