FSW kicked off National Slavery & Human Trafficking Prevention Month on Jan. 16 with an outdoor Lee campus exhibit by photographer Kay Chernush.
Students and faculty joined Red Sand Project. They filled sidewalk cracks on campus with red sand to symbolize closing the cracks in society that human trafficking victims slip through.
On Jan. 24, FSW screened “The True Cost”, a documentary that shines a light on unhealthy workplace conditions and human rights violations in third-world garment factories making stylish, cheap clothes for stores like Forever 21 and Zara.
Local and international survivor advocates gathered on Jan. 31 for a human trafficking panel discussion.
