'PUSH BACK TRAFFICKING'
GIVE A BACKPACK TODAY TO
PUSH BACK TRAFFICKING.
Project 'PUSH BACK TRAFFICKING' is a public awareness campaign to prioritize prevention of child trafficking right from the start.
COVID-19 pandemic has disproportionately affected already vulnerable students– many of whom are at-risk to become a trafficked victim.
IMPORTANT DATES AND TIMES:
July 1st through August 1st 2021:
GIVE A BACKPACK TODAY TO PUSH BACK TRAFFICKING.
238 children were identified as victims of trafficking in Missouri between 2015-2019. And... we know the actual number of victims is likely higher as many cases are unreported. To honor those 238 child trafficking victims, Gateway Human Trafficking will contribute 238 backpacks on July 30, 2021 to our local schools to support students and their families who are struggling financially.
July 26 through July 31, 2021:
Download our social media toolkit and post our messages via social media, follow us, like us, and share our posts. Then, do not forget to #PushBackTrafficking, #GatewayHT, and #GatewayHumanTrafficking to spread the word out to more people.
