Saturday, April 28 from 1:00 PM – 5:00 PM
The SOAP Outreach is an event planned by the New Jersey Coalition Against Human Trafficking. Their goal is to help save local missing kids and prevent sex trafficking in our state by making hotels and motels aware of how to spot trafficked victims.
The event begins with Theresa Flores who is a human trafficking survivor herself and is the SOAP (Save Our Adolescents from Prostitution) founder. She will speak about her experiences, and what we can do to help stop kids from being trafficked in our local areas.
After 2 hours of being trained by her, you will be split up into groups of 2-4. Each group will be assigned to 4 hotels or motels in Union & Essex county. (Each team must have at least one driver.)
Teams will take posters with photos of missing kids to show front desk staff: explain the warning signs of sex trafficking; and to many offer free bars of soap labeled with the national human trafficking hotline number. Teams will set off at approximately 3:30pm and should have outreach visits at approximately 5pm. It is not necessary to return to the training venue - outreach reports are photographed and emailed to the Coalition.
