This week on Spotlight with Laurie Hardie, Sunday at 5a:
This week we hear from Tammie Enders, a teacher at Stevens Creek Elementary school and Mirza Advic with The Hungry Hearts Foundation. When Tammie discovered one of her own students would be without adequate food over winter break, she decided something had to be done. She contacted Anita Caffee, and together they vowed that no child would go hungry at their school. For more than 5 years the foundation has been sending back packs with food home with children in the free and reduced lunch program on weekends and during the summer.
Then stay tuned for Sunday Morning Magazine with Kate Daniels at 5:30a
January is Human Trafficking Awareness Month. And it’s important to note the fact that this is a daily tragedy, each day of the year. Elizabeth Melendez Fisher Good is the CEO and cofounder of Selah Freedom and the Selah Way Foundation, which exist to prevent sexual abuse, exploitation, and sex trafficking of children and young adults. Elizabeth is also the author of a new book, a hugely important book, which reveals how sexual exploitation, and other exploitation begins at a very young age, and how we can become healed, and empowered to make changes: Groomed–Overcoming the Messages That Shaped Our Past and Limit Our Future.
One key way to make a difference now is to call our Federal representatives to support House Bill 4388–provides for the implementation of curricula for training students, teachers, and school personnel to understand, recognize, prevent, and respond to signs of human trafficking and exploitation in children and youth. Age appropriate curricula for K-12.
