A21, an anti-trafficking organisation, joined students at the Los Angeles School of Global Studies, to launch their Human Trafficking Awareness Program.
The program, which will be rolled out across the world in eight different languages, aims to educate individuals on human trafficking: teaching them to spot the signs of slavery and equipping them with tools to take action -- such as the hotlines to call.
Katy, from A21, tells CNN that she hopes the program will "empower us to be a part of the solution to see human trafficking eradicated in this generation."
High school student Oswald says that from today he's learned how modern slavery isn't just an issue happening overseas. "It's happening right here in LA...at every corner of the planet," he says.
"It's so important to get educated about that, and inform our community about that," he adds, calling for tangible action against trafficking.
