It’s Earth Day. 44 years we’ve been celebrating it, now. We’ve come so far since those surreal years (before my time) when evil companies just dumped chemicals on the ground, in our rivers, or sent them up smoke stacks. So many battles were hard-fought by those early environmental heroes. Big laws were passed, and big lawsuits were won. Dr. Seuss’s Lorax was redeemed!
The report that recently came out, as disheartening as it is, only confirms what we already know: that trafficking is a very real issue in our state and in our city. Street Grace has been working since 2009 to bring the issue of Domestic Minor Sex Trafficking (DMST) to the forefront of people’s minds. We know at Street Grace that there is a pathway to change beginning with awareness, empowerment, and engagement, which will ultimately lead to social change.
