Oakland County Commissioner Janet Jackson Support S.O.A.P’s Human Trafficking Awareness and Action Outreach Effort

According to a recent press release, on August 8, 2015, Oakland County Commissioner Janet Jackson will join with the “Save Our Adolescents from Prostitution,” S.O.A.P., an organization founded by Theresa Flores, a local human trafficking survivor and author of the Slave Across the Street, to promote awareness about the issue of Human Trafficking.

The informational event and training will be held from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m., at the Oakland Community College’s Southfield Campus, in the Student Union, located at 22312 Rutland Drive in Southfield, Michigan. Participants will have the opportunity to disburse into teams to distribute S.O.A.P. labeled with the National Human Trafficking Hotline phone number and missing area youth information to local hotels and motels as part of a community outreach effort in Oakland County. For more information about the S.O.A.P. Up effort before the cruise, call 734-796-0643 or 734-354-8055.

Initiatives such as S.O.A.P. continue to reflect the ongoing commitment of many individuals, officials, and organizations, like Oakland County Commissioner Janet Jackson, who has served on the Oakland County Human Trafficking Workshop Committee and help to host a very successful Human Trafficking educational and informational public forum, which was supported by the Oakland County Board of Commissioners in November 2014. Many youth service groups, law enforcement agencies, and survivors participated in the event.

This most recent awareness effort is in keeping with Commissioner Janet Jackson’s ongoing work with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children to promote a series of community outreach efforts, which she has hosted in Oakland County.
