Allstate and Clearwater campuses to display human trafficking awareness exhibit

March 26, 2010 at 3:45 pm Leave a comment

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.

who we are:

Early in 2008, St. Petersburg College recognized its responsibility to model to our students, employees and community ways to minimize global warming emissions and provide the knowledge to our graduates to help achieve a more environmentally friendly future. Because of this, the College made sustainability (defined as meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs) a top priority. As a result, the Office for Sustainability was established.

what we do:

Working alongside internal and external partners, the Office for Sustainability focuses on the following areas of environmental stewardship: educational programs and corporate training, energy and natural resource conservation, green buildings and facilities, carbon emissions, recycling and student activities.
