April 29: Keystone students host event on human trafficking in St. Louis

| April 28, 2015

Students in the Keystone 4003 Seminar course, “Contemporary Forms of Slavery/Human
Trafficking,” will conduct a “Photo Awareness SPEAK OUT against Human Trafficking in St. Louis” event on the Quad by the Gor-Rock Wednesday, April 29, 2-3:30 p.m.

The activity fulfills a requirement in the course where the class must collectively undertake a
project that conveys to a wider audience the knowledge acquired and to engage that audience in a positive response. “Contemporary Forms of Slavery/Human Trafficking” is an elective course in the undergraduate Global Citizenship Program.

A special guest at the event will be Tricia Roland-Hamilton, executive director of Magdalene House St. Louisa residential program for women recovering from prostitution, sex trafficking, abuse and addiction. Roland-Hamilton will speak about human trafficking in St. Louis.

“Students will distribute pamphlets describing the work of St. Louis-based organizations that are addressing the human trafficking situation in St. Louis,” said Mary Beth Reissen, the keystone course designer/instructor. “They will takee photos of any students who want to go on record as speaking out against human trafficking in St. Louis.”
