KCKCC to Host Program Focusing on Human Trafficking

Posted on Tuesday, October 22, 2019

The Kansas City Kansas Community College Counseling & Advocacy Center is hosting its monthly program later this week, which will focus on human trafficking.

“BeAlert: The Reality of Sex Trafficking,” is from Noon to 1 p.m. Oct. 23 in Room 2325 on the KCKCC Main Campus, 7250 State Ave. The event is open to the community and is co-hosted by Women & Gender Advocacy, the Counseling & Advocacy Center, Student Health Services, the KCKCC Intercultural Center and the AAUW. A light lunch will also be served.

Presented by September Trible, the presentation will touch on a variety of topics relating to human trafficking including the myths vs. realities; characteristics of the victims; the impact of the Internet and social media; identifying and reporting and most importantly keeping children safe.

Trible has been formally engaged in the battle to prevent, heal and reduce sex trafficking since 2011. As a survivor of Domestic Minor Sex Trafficking (DMST), her mission is to see youth, parents, caring adults and community leaders become educated and empowered to prevent this crime. As a Certified BeAlert Presenter with the Stop Trafficking Project, she is a committed victim advocate and was a founding board member of KC Street Hope. Trible later served for more than three years as the executive director for a long-term residential recovery program serving adult survivors of commercial sexual exploitation.
