WHAT THEY NEED TO KNOW
FLORIDA IS RANKED 3RD INTHE NATION FOR HUMAN TRAFFICKING
Every student, every grade, every year will be educated on recognizing the signs of human trafficking, prevalence and nature of human trafficking, strategies to reduce risk, resources at the national, state, and local levels, how to set relationship boundaries, how to seek help safely, and how social media and mobile apps are used for human trafficking.
We want to change our communities and continue to support the intent of the Florida Department of Education’s Rule 6A-1.094124 to create Child Trafficking Free Zones. Our resources are completely FREE and available to any organization that cares for or educates children.
No matter a child’s age, socioeconomic status, race or location no child is immune to becoming a victim of sex or labor trafficking. In 2016 Her Song partnered with Duval County Public Schools to provide annual curriculum to educate students on the dangers and pitfalls of human trafficking. Our educational motto is “Teach What They Need To Know”. To date more than 40,500 students have been educated on how to stay safe.
Last year, Her Song, along with the Global Anti-Human Trafficking Organization A21, researched and drafted age-appropriate and developmentally appropriate K-12 resources to support the Florida Department of Educations Rule 6A-1.094124. A pilot study on the resources was conducted in Duval County Schools to gather teacher and student feedback.
With the passing of Florida’s HB519 and a successful pilot program, Her Song is ready to support all Florida School Districts with evidence-based, evidence-informed, school district tested, age-appropriate, developmentally appropriate, comprehensive K-12 human trafficking awareness and prevention resources.
