For the Love of a Student: Dear Ms. A

  Dear Ms. Amber,

I remember telling you I wanted to die. You were the first adult I had ever been honest with about my struggles with suicidality. You were gentle but firm. You told me I could get through this and you weren’t going to let me kill myself.


Throughout the darkness of my trafficking during high school, you were like a big sister to me. Loving and kind, and spunky and sarcastic. You supported me through the darkest parts, and were there to celebrate with me in the triumphs. You were a shoulder to cry on and a silly dance party waiting to happen.


Thank you for giving me the chance to feel normal. To enjoy the things I loved. To escape into the arts and be comfortable in my own skin. Thank you for never giving up on me, even when I had given up on myself.


I am forever grateful for you and the light that you were in what seemed like a never-ending darkness. Please never let anyone dull that light.


Love you big,

Dear Teachers,


First of all, thank you. Your dedication to educating our children is an incredible service to our families, communities, and societies.


As educators, you have a front-row seat to your students’ lives, progress, achievements, and challenges. But being on the frontlines also means you are often the first to notice any red flags—including the signs of sex trafficking.


While you can probably tell when something isn’t quite right—a subtle change in behavior or appearance—that doesn’t always guarantee you know what that change means. You also may not know what next steps to take after noticing something concerning.


We hope to change that.


At OnWatch™, it is our mission to combat sex trafficking through education. And we can do so with our comprehensive and accessible digital training program. Combining true survivor experiences with industry expertise, OnWatch seeks to empower individuals to spot, report, and prevent sex trafficking in their communities.


And best of all, it’s completely free.


We recognize how essential of a role you play in the lives of our children and in our society. We also understand how overwhelming that much responsibility can be. That’s why we’ve created our new OnWatch Educators Portal. The new portal is a curated collection of modules from the OnWatch curriculum designed to empower teachers and educators when they notice a potential concern in their classrooms. Because we know that with this knowledge, you can make a powerful impact.


We invite you to join us in the fight against sex trafficking and to become OnWatch.
