Arizona State University and Michigan State Univeristy
Students from All Walks Project at Arizona State University and the Nursing Student Association at Michigan State University collaborated on an effort to raise awareness of human trafficking at the ASU/MSU football game on September 8, 2018.
Student Alliance partners worked with ASU Athletics to organize a pre-game recognition for human trafficking and the intercampus awareness effort. Announcers at the football game spoke about the organizations and informed attendees on the global estimate for trafficking victims, a number that could fill Sun Devil Stadium 562 times! All Walks Project students created “END TRAFFICKING” posters for the ASU Spirit Squad to hold on the field and McCain Institute provided the spirit squads and band with uniform patches that read “Together We Can End Human Trafficking.” Throughout the game, All Walks Project members distributed awareness flyers, indicator cards, T-shirts, stickers and water bottles to attendees, which totaled 53,599 at Saturday’s game.
This effort marks the fourth academic year that ASU Athletics has partnered with McCain Institute and the Student Alliance to raise awareness of human trafficking at sporting events.
