Confronting Acts of Dehumanization: Human Trafficking Prevention Training with Ascent 121

Student Training Session

CANDLES, with support from Indiana Humanities, is hosting a second workshop to present information and tactics to prevent human trafficking. This workshop is open to middle school and high school students. Representatives from Ascent 121 will educate young adults on the often-hidden signs and implications of human trafficking. They will provide tools and identifiers to help students recognize risks and potential threats. This training is free and open to students from any area.

Pizza will be served for the participants. At this time, this workshop is for middle school and high school students only.

Ascent 121 provides advocacy and recovery services for Indiana survivors of trafficking and is one of the only providers in Indiana to specialize in long-term care for human trafficking survivors. They serve over one hundred kids each year and are based in Indianapolis. Learn more about the agency and volunteer opportunities at and follow them on Facebook and Twitter.

Training Program Film: Chosen

Learn the shocking true story of two teen girls tricked by traffickers. Brianna, 18, was a star student, cheerleader, and waitress eager to break out of her small town and attend college in the big city. Lacy, 13, enjoyed church and school but struggled to help care for her siblings while her stepfather was deployed and her mother worked to support the family. Brianna and Lacy share how traffickers used manipulation to lure them into the world of sex trafficking.

This story is part of Chosen, a critically acclaimed documentary by Shared Hope International. Following the film, there will be a conversation with Ascent 121, a local agency that provides long term trauma recovery for Indiana teen survivors of sex trafficking.
