Students to raise awareness for sex trafficking victims  

In recognition of Human Trafficking Awareness Month, the organization Students for Violence Prevention at Pittsburg State University will host an event open to the public beginning at 7 p.m. on Jan. 25 at the Bicknell Family Center for the Arts, 1711 S. Homer. 

It will be co-hosted by the SEK Women's Intersectional Network (SEK WIN). 

The event will begin with a screening of “Surviving Sex Trafficking,” an award-winning documentary that "examines the ongoing struggles of those survivors as they desperately fight to break free of their past, heal their bodies and minds, reconnect with a world of hope, and reclaim their lost humanity."  

A question and answer session with representatives of RISE (Regional Intervention of Sexual Exploitation) Coalition, SafeHouse Crisis Center, and the Pittsburg Police Department will follow the film.  

This event is free and open to all and will take place in the Miller Theatre.
