PROTECT Prevention Education
Roughly 79,000 children are trafficked each year in the State of Texas.
The Fort Worth ISD is collaborating with 3Strands Global Foundation and Unbound Now to equip students, parents, teachers, and staff to recognize the red flags of child exploitation.
Let's work together to keep our students safe!
