Worldwide, there are 27 million victims of trafficking. With that in mind, this project intended to help students (a) gain an understanding of social issues throughout the world, (b) become activists on behalf of victims of social injustice, and (c) educate others about social injustice and what can be done to reform it. A 26-item survey assessed student knowledge about trafficking. Clemson students correctly answered just over half of the survey questions (M = 16.84; SD = 2.37). The team then designed activities to raise awareness about trafficking. Activities included a venue for students to create Valentine's for trafficking victims, a campus showing of the film "Not My Life" and an invited speaker an expert on trafficking. At all events bookmarks containing survey results were distributed."
