WI, we need to talk about raising awareness that youth in Wisconsin are bing sex trafficked or may be at risk of being sex trafficked. Talking about human trafficking is hard. It's OK to talk about it. In fact, we encourage it.

What is my role is supporting justice issues?
Your role is whatever you can do, whatever you feel comfortable doing for any issue you are passionate about. Speaking for the underserved, working with legislatures, volunteering to help at a food shelf, soup kitchen, clothes closet, etc. All of these are helping with justice issues. What are you doing to be the change you want to see in the world?
