Allstate and Clearwater campuses to display human trafficking awareness exhibit
SPC’s Center for Human Trafficking Awareness is sponsoring two visits by The Florida Modern-Day Slavery Museum.
The museum consists of a cargo truck outfitted as a replica of the trucks involved in a recent slavery operation (U.S. v. Navarrete, 2008), in which farm workers were manacled, locked each night in a truck, beaten and forced to harvest tomatoes in Florida’s fields. The replica will be accompanied by displays on the history and evolution of slavery in Florida.
The Clearwater Campus will host the mobile museum on April 1 from 9 a.m.-4 p.m, in the Language Arts parking lot. The display will visit the Allstate Center on April 7 from 1-5 p.m. at its main entrance.
This event is free and open to the public. The Center for Human Trafficking Awareness Web site is maintained by personnel from the Center for Public Safety Innovation at the Allstate Center.
