On February 6th, social work graduate students from Boston University, Salem State, Boston College, Simmons College and Wheelock gathered to educate the next generation of social workers on the Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Children (CSEC). The event was hosted and presented by My Life My Choice director and BUSSW alumna, Lisa Goldblatt-Grace (SSW ’96), and Action Team members from each of the schools of social work. The event included Survivor testimony and focused on increasing participants’ knowledge of how to help at-risk youth avoid and/or exit prostitution. Over 120 people from the five schools attended the event.
