Technology is not the enemy. But the reality is that our kid’s vulnerabilities can and are being exploited online. The worst-case scenarios have led to the crime of domestic minor sex trafficking (DMST). This presentation is designed to impact your personal and professional life. An appropriate image and three words have the power to change your perspective. Together we will become increasingly educated and empowered for the sake of students we care about.
The presenter is Russ Tuttle, the founder and president of the Stop Trafficking Project. Russ is also the creator and director of BeAlert, which is the prevention and awareness strategy of the Stop Trafficking Project.
