CHI Mercy Health, Roseburg, OR, and the rest of the Douglas County Human Trafficking Task Force (DCHTTF) received a grant from Zonta International that will support implementation of a human trafficking prevention curriculum in all 26 middle and high schools in the county. The Zonta Club of Roseburg and the DCHTTF jointly applied for the Zonta International Centennial Anniversary Grant and received one of 62 grants presented worldwide.

Most of Douglas County’s schools are located near major human trafficking corridors. The grant will support teacher training, and each middle and high school teacher who attends will receive the Teens Against Trafficking curriculum. “This is a curriculum to increase understanding among our youth, teachers, parents, and service providers about trafficking indicators and risks,” said Marion Kotowski, violence prevention coordinator for Mercy Foundation and chair of the task force. “It will help teach students to establish healthy boundaries in relationships, reduce risky behavior, and recognize predatory behavior both in person and online.”
