“Sex Trafficking Awareness & Safety 101 is an amazing workshop. Our students were able to learn a lot and engage and participate and really reflect on things happening here in our city in Atlanta and all around the world. It was important for us to have Starr present to our students because we knew that she would be lively and energetic and engage our students in a discussion and that it would not feel like a lecture on a topic that could be hard for some students. Starr connected with our students and helped them understand this big and complex issue. Our students learned a lot and will use this information to protect themselves and their friends.”
