The Student Alliance Against Trafficking has aimed to unite and empower a community of student advocates with resources to combat human trafficking for the past five years, developing powerful international partnerships while impacting local communities in exciting, innovative ways. As we navigate the new landscape COVID-19 has leveled for our world, we must evolve together toward developing action-based, student-driven solutions to end this crime while maintaining the safety of our student partners. A new vision inclusive of remote opportunities for student engagement will be announced this fall to continue to provide actionable resources for the next generation committed to this cause. In the meantime, we invite you to explore the educational resources on our website, learn how you can continue to make a difference during COVID-19 and share our infographics to continue the conversation online.
