Teens in CT Fight Injustice

 

I read two different articles today about sex trafficking in CT (where I’m from).

One was a bit discouraging, talking about some of the challenges that workers face to help young women and the debate between removing craigslist/backpage and keeping it in order to help locate and prosecute pimps.  I suppose there is some encouragement – people are being trained; Love146 is at work providing support.

The second article also mentions Love146 and it’s about teens getting involved to raise awareness.  Upon finding out that several young women were trafficked out of Norwalk, a group of students decided to raise awareness at truck stops and rest areas.

Well done, students.  Instead of getting discouraged, they took action.  What an example to the rest of us!
