A couple of weeks ago, a gentleman who is a great supporter of Love146 told me that they didn’t realize that we worked in the U.S. At first I was shocked and then as a member of the U.S. communications team I began to wonder if we have communicated enough about our work here.
I thought of this gentleman again when at our weekly staff meeting, Nicole, our U.S. training and outreach coordinator told us that a police officer in the North East region of CT approached her to speak to over 600 9th and 10th grade students on commercial sexual exploitation of children (CSEC) and human trafficking in the same area of CT where several cases have been reported. A detective who is a recognized expert in child sexual abuse also asked her to come and conduct a training on CSEC, human trafficking and the local laws which relate to these subjects. He is gathering over 200 people made up of police detectives, prosecutors, teachers and youth service advocates. Want to know the best part? Nicole does these training’s all the time!
