Students from Jefferson Township High School presented “Project Stay Gold” to the members of Knights of Columbus Council 5510 Milton/Oak Ridge.
Project Stay Gold is a student abolitionist movement using the power of education that hopes to raise awareness, advocate for abolition, and support rescue and prevention missions and fight modern day slavery and human trafficking.
Recently, they have gained federal recognition, testifying before a US Senate panel concerning education and human trafficking. They will also be accompanying Senator Jeffrey Chiesa to numerous other New Jersey schools carrying their message of awareness and action.
The movement presented their mission, accomplishments, and future plans to the Joseph Lamb Knights of Columbus on September 19th. They were gifted with a donation to further their work calling attention to human trafficking and its elevated presence around major sporting events like the Super Bowl, which will be held at MetLife Stadium in 2014.
