The Women’s Center of Greater Danbury is conducting a free program this winter break for middle and high school students called Not A #Number from Love146.  The prevention program is designed to inspire youth to make safe choices when they encounter potentially exploitative situations and use healthy support systems to decrease their vulnerability. 


Women's Center officials say Danbury Mall is the top place where children are trafficked in this area. 


Not A #Number is an interactive, five-module child trafficking and exploitation prevention curriculum designed to teach youth how to protect themselves through information, critical thinking and skill development--focusing on respect, empathy, individual strengths, and the relationship between personal and societal pressures that create or increase vulnerabilities.
