The “Prevention Project” is a program put into place by the Richmond Justice Initiative whose objective is to equip, mobilize and educate communities on how to fight human trafficking. RJI believes that the education of high school and college students is the best way to prevent that at-risk population from falling into the hands of traffickers and/or criminals. Through a six (6) lesson academic curriculum students receive information from a comprehensive approach. Attendants are taught about the international dimensions of the crime, their impact at home, the economics of trafficking and the impact it has on culture and in their communities. Also, potential victims receive useful information to identify cases in which they or someone close may be endangered. Currently, the program has been implemented in 7 States of the US, reaching over 11,000 students.
