Shattered Lives: Campus Safety

  Going away to college is a time in a young persons’ life that should be about discovery, learning, and making lifelong friends. However, as parents send their children away from home, some for the very first time, there is even more to be anxious about, especially their safety on campus. According to the Justice Department, “1 in 5 women will be a victim of rape or attempted rape.” When these incidents occur on campus property they are in the jurisdiction of campus police, and many victims do not report, or are discouraged to report by school administrators. With sexual assaults, active shooters, and luring into human trafficking from our college campuses, the college experience has changed. Guest for the hour on Shattered Lives Radio S. Daniel Carter will discuss these issues and what is being done to create real, enforceable guidelines for campuses to follow in order to make the environment safer for students everywhere. In this video Laura Dunn and S. Daniel Carter discuss the prevention efforts institutions of higher education must take; …

Town Hall Magazine Features Dottie Laster: Human Trafficking on Your Campus

The August issue of the popular news magazine, Town Hall, features an article about human trafficking and its infiltration into mainstream America, our upscale neighborhoods and college campuses, recruiting young people who are seemingly academically successful and from stable families. Columnist Elisabeth Meinecke reports, “Now anyone can be a target, even the person you least expect.” Included is the story of a Carnegie Hall violinist who was attending a private university on a scholarship, targeted by traffickers on her college campus, and is still ensnared by the coercion of the group of traffickers. She comes from a good faith-based family and is not the typical victim type, not necessarily a vulnerable target, other than perhaps naiveté and a lack of street smarts.
