This university’s Alpha Sigma Phi chapter gained official recognition as a Safe Haven last night, becoming the nation’s first fraternity to have members trained in taking an active stance against human trafficking.
National grassroots movement Safe Haven Campaign: Interfaith Alliance to Abolish Human Trafficking trains volunteers to recognize the signs of human trafficking, guide survivors to seek help and educate communities on the issue.
Louise Dickson, the volunteer coordinator for the organization in this state, presented the fraternity with a plaque that commemorates the work of the four members who completed a four-hour training program with her on behalf of the organization.
“[Alpha Sigma Phi] is a stellar example of building the better man and taking initiative to address this public issue of great concern,” Dickson said. “My hope is that this initiative will spread and duplicate based on the efforts of these young men today.”
