178: Art program to Fight Human Trafficking of Young American Girls.
Art program to Fight Human Trafficking of Young American Girls.
Sanibel-Captiva Islander, November 5, 2010
Human Traffickers target American girls between the ages of 11 to 15 more than any other group. In an effort to educate girls in this age group, Human Trafficking Awareness Partnerships has organized a number of ARTREACH programs and has just concluded its second painting project.
A group of students from around Lee County worked at the Bethany Lutheran Church in North Ft. Myers to create 4 canvas wall hangings measuring 3 ft x 4 ft which depict the dangers of human trafficking to young American girls. These students ranged in age from 10 to 18 and a group of their mothers who are students at Hodges University volunteered and produced one painting of their own.
