Wexford-Missaukee CTC Students Help Raise Awareness of Human Trafficking
Some high schools students helped spread awareness about human trafficking in the Cadillac area.
Students from the Wexford-Missaukee Career Tech Center Public Safety and National Technical Honor Society Program took part in the effort.
They joined Michigan State Police to distribute make up remover packets and bars of soap to area hotels.
They have a number on them someone can call for help if they’re caught in a human trafficking situation.
“We know the target demographic is 12-14 years old for human trafficking, which is very scary in itself, and these are high school kids, so they’re right in that demographic. And to bring this out of the shadows, it’s a hidden crime, so the more this message can be spread, kids in that demographic can spread it and be a part of it they can be a part of the solution,” said Trooper David Prichard.
In total, the students visited six hotels around Cadillac.
