Description

The Denver (CO) Chapter of The Links, Inc. will present a community education event on April 13th, 2019 designed for young girls grades 5 – 8 for a day of fun and engagement on topics that support cyber safety, social media management, and self-awareness. The event will be held at Hallett Academy in the Denver Park Hill neighborhood and will begin with a human trafficking presentation for parents, followed by interactive breakout sessions where girls will experience various learning activities that incorporate self-esteem, healthy lifestyles, coping skills, art expression and practical tools to successfully navigate issues every girl faces today.

Dr. Stephany Powell, a retired Vice Sergeant from the Los Angeles Police Department and currently the Executive Director of “Journey Out,” will be a featured speaker. Dr. Powell has worked in the area of domestic human sex trafficking for almost 10 years. She leads education and awareness workshops and since 2013 has educated approximately 6,000 people. Her passion is speaking with young girls to ensure they are aware of the dangers and providing tips on how to stay safe. Dr. Powell will be joined by a variety of local community based organizations and experts who will offer additional insights, as well as resources for attendees and families.
