Blanketing Rocky Point in Blue to Spread Awareness

Rocky Point High School helped to shine a light on a large cause for concern this January as the building recognized Human Trafficking Awareness Day. 

According to the Department of State, the top three states in the United States with the most human trafficking activity are California, Texas and New York. The 2018 Global Slavery Index estimates that on any given day in 2016, there were 403,000 people living in conditions of modern slavery in the United States. 

In honor of Human Trafficking Awareness Day, Rocky Point’s Human Rights Club spread awareness of this cause by placing small blue hearts (blue being the color that symbolizes human trafficking awareness) on the doors and doorways of the high school building to show shocking facts and statistics around the school. With the knowledge students gained from the blue hearts, it was the club’s hope to have students want to show their support by signing their pledge to help end human trafficking on a large blue heart before and after school.
