Attention all youth at home during the COVID-19 crisis:
Been hearing a lot about human trafficking and online exploitation lately?
What do they really look like? Are you at risk?
What does this all mean to you, your friends and your community?
Join the youth team of Aura Freedom's Peer Prevention Project for an interactive webinar aimed at preventing human trafficking, online exploitation and gender-based violence though education and empowerment. Designed and created for youth, by youth, our webinar will increase your awareness of trafficking and exploitation with a focus on its root causes and give you the tools you need to keep yourself and your friends safe.
