Title:
Canada's Secret Shame: Human Trafficking
Topic:
Equip yourself to recognize if one of your students is being groomed, recruited, or trafficked for sexual acts right here in Alberta. Make a difference in this social issue.
Summary:
The statistics tell us that 1 out of every 4 families in Canada is impacted by human trafficking. If it was happening to one of your students, would you know what to do? Learn about the history and prevalence of this social epidemic in our nation, and gain tools to stop it. Knowing the signs of a predator, stories of survivors, and ways to make a difference are all part of protecting our youth. Access to curriculum is available for you to take back to your classroom to empower your students, which can easily be integrated into your health, PE, or Social Studies courses.
Biography:
Joy Smith is an educator of 23 years, as well as the only MP to make Canadian history for passing two Private Member Bills against human trafficking.
