Viterbo's "Munch N Learn" raises awareness for human trafficking

Posted: Updated:
La Crosse, WI (WXOW) -

Viterbo University's "Munch N Learn" is an educational series that features speakers raising awareness for a variety of topics affecting students, and on February 8 students focus on a topic that is closer to home than most people think.

The February 8 "Munch N Learn" centers around the topic of human trafficking and sexual exploitation, featuring Executive Director of Damascus Road, Lisa Sennholz.

Damascus Road is an organization dedicated to fighting human trafficking and sexual exploitation around the world through education and awareness.

The event provides students with information regarding human trafficking in Wisconsin, what to do if you think someone is being trafficked, and strategies to keep people in our community as safe as possible.

Sennholz describes, "If there are organizations within the communities that can go into the schools, go into churches and youth groups, and speak to kids about the ways traffickers will recruit, and what makes them vulnerable to being recruited, I think that that's a huge deterrent of someone being trafficked."

Viterbo University's next "Munch N Learn" will focus on emotional wellness on March 23.
