Event at ACT in March 12 in recognition of Stop the Sexual Exploitation of Children and Youth Awareness Week, March 11 - 17

The Ridge Meadows Community Action Team host a free public event next week to promote awareness about the sexual exploitation of children and youth in the community.

The event is being held in recognition of Stop the Sexual Exploitation of Children and Youth Awareness Week, March 11 – 17.

The week emphasizes the importance of supporting communities to develop prevention, education, enforcement and intervention strategies to address the sexual exploitation of children and youth.

The Youth Art Gallery will feature the work of local youth who have been educated on the issues of sexual exploitation and created art to reflect their knowledge.

The event will also feature a presentation by Safe Online Outreach Society on internet safety and cyber-bullying.

The Ridge Meadows team will be distributing fuchsia coloured ribbons and bracelets with the words ‘Stop Sexual Exploitation’ inscribed on them.

The colour fuchsia represents a combination of the colour red, for the red light districts, and purple, the provincial colour for violence prevention.

Admission to the event is free and all youth, friends and family are encouraged to attend.
