Human Trafficking Awareness

Our current community impact project is to develop and deliver a Human Trafficking Awareness campaign. Parent and guardian education on this topic is found to be lacking, as confirmed by the Broward Sherriff’s Office and the Broward Human Trafficking Coalition. With the added benefit of being selected as a Leadership Broward Class of XXIII community project, the League produced a strong awareness campaign that we will continue to use for years to come.
