DPI works to prevent all forms of violence. As part of Broward Human Trafficking Coalition, we work to increase awareness of the human trafficking plague via a multi-tiered prevention and intervention framework as seen in this BCPS Human Trafficking Services document. This slavery affects us all – both internationally and domestically. Did you know sex trafficking victims, on average, are first exploited by the age of 13? Did you know that Florida ranks in the top in terms of numbers of people enslaved? Download and watch this video then share it with your students to learn more. Look below the surface and recognize victims of human trafficking are among the people you see every day - maids, factory workers, construction, farming, landscaping, hotel/tourist industries, panhandling, janitorial services, restaurant service - everywhere!
