Human Trafficking Advocacy

"Human trafficking is a form of modern-day slavery. This crime occurs when a trafficker uses force, fraud or coercion to control another person for the purpose of engaging in commercial sex acts or soliciting labor or services against his/her will."

-National Human Trafficking Hotline 

Human Trafficking Awareness Month takes place through the month of January. During this month, we partner with Women's Services Inc. to put on educational programming and provide resources to students. We are also in the works on creating a program to assist members of our community to stay safe when traveling. 

ABOUT US >

Why Not Us? has four core pillars. These are as follows:

 

Educate the Allegheny College community members about the sexual violence and rape culture that affects all members of this community.


Engage members of the Allegheny College community through campus-wide events, discussions, and collaborative efforts. Why Not Us?  will work with Allegheny College administrators to ensure that our campus community can best support survivors of sexual violence, and work to end rape culture. 


Empower those in our community to work to end rape culture, step up when they witness instances of injustice, and to support survivors of sexual violence. 


Collaborate with other campus organizations to influence campus policy and climate with the goal of ending rape culture.
