Revision of Human Trafficking Curriculum in NC Education
The exploitation of a person through force, fraud or coercion to perform commercial sex acts or forced labor is known as human trafficking. The average age of coercion into this sickening industry is 13 years of age. Over 100,000 reported minors are being trafficked in the United States and only 2% are rescued. Something must be done to put an end to this social injustice.
Educating the youth that are vulnerable to recruitment is essential to preventing human trafficking. North Carolina schools are required by Senate Bill 279 to incorporate human trafficking into their sex ed curriculum but this curriculum is vague and not as effective as it should be. If we want to see an end to the horrific industry of sex trafficking we must educate our students successfully by better equipping teachers to provide effective education. Show your support to help provide more training to our educators who in turn will better educate our students in the realities of human trafficking.
By signing this petition you are showing your support to request a revision of Senate Bill 279 to include better training for teachers who teach the curriculum, training of support staff to assist in potential cases, and a form of reporting the effectiveness of the curriculum.
