Our fifth annual Human Trafficking Awareness Month panel discussion at Millikin University was covered by our local newspaper in Decatur, the Herald and Review and a colleague sent me a picture of the published story in the newspaper below. I am very thankful that the reporter took time to cover this topic and listen to my critiques of media coverage on human trafficking. He also published the Human Trafficking Hotline number at the bottom of the story and said he would continue to include in other stories on human trafficking in the future. Here is the online version of the story if you would like to read about our event. The panel discussion was covered by the Millikin University public relations department and you can read that story here . Thanks to everyone for raising awareness to this issue during Human Trafficking Awareness Month!

We just wrapped up our fifth annual Human Trafficking Awareness Month panel discussion at Millikin University and the event was a huge success. Around 40 students, faculty, staff and community members came out before the big snow storm to learn about the intersections of human trafficking education and training. We hosted Matthew Fuller, Human Trafficking Training Specialist at the Center for Prevention of Abuse in Peoria, Cindy Kuro, Prevention Educator from the Set Free Movement-Macon County, and Cheris Larson, Program Manager at Project OZ in Bloomington. The panel discussion focused on the educational opportunities, prevailing pedagogies on human trafficking, challenges to teaching about this hidden crime, and how to combat disinformation through learning opportunities. The panel discussion was sponsored by the Set Free Movement-Macon County and the Department History and Political Science at Millikin University. We are thankful for our wonderful advocates and educators in Central
