The Junior League of Birmingham, MI and SOAP

A little bit of SOAP

The Junior League of Birmingham, MI: The League is working on the issue of human trafficking on both the state level, through its work with the Michigan State Council of Junior Leagues, and locally. Locally, the League is in its second year of partnering with SOAP, Save Our Adolescents from Prostitution. Together the League and SOAP have sponsored trainings to teach members of the hospitality industry to spot the signs of trafficking. Most importantly, both groups distributed bars of soap bearing stickers with the National Human Trafficking Hotline number and information about victim support services to hotels and motels in advance of the Detroit Auto Show. Often the only time a victim is alone is when they are in the bathroom so the stamped bars of soap offer an important lifeline to reach out with help.
