Sorry I missed the video – a group of Kasson High School students created a “Stop Sex Trafficking” app which is for teens teaching teens. The app addresses a significant and fast growing crime against youth. The app is simple, fun and engaging while providing facts, vocabulary, red flags, reasons victims stay, and additional resources for obtaining help or further education.

Use to live in a city where human trafficking was number 3 in the state of Florida. Awful, what follows is horrible. We have to educate, but love, love, love all children so they do not feel empty and go with others easily. Yes, they are in vans looking for 14 year old girls plus, but sometimes they are sitting outside a cafe and men regularly buy them expensive coffee drinks and slowly get close to them. Just as all this POWER based sexual harassment going on…what comments do you have about the similarities?
Hello @AgentDarien, I wish I had the answer and we could make it disappear. There is evil out in the world and I think one of the best things we can do as parents is to like you say love our children…actually love all children as they are our future. Also, communicate with them about how to avoid dangerous or suspicious situations and what to do if they get caught up in one. As far as similarities with all of the power based sexual harassment going on, I think they are two different things – both extremely evil (IMHO).
