THE ASSEMBLY

The assembly, or event experience as we like to call it, is a 45-60 minute interactive, 3D presentation that is mixed with engaging speakers–including survivors, powerful stories, and ends with a call to action, asking students to be a Revolutionary and help bring an end to modern day slavery and exploitation. Our assemblies are tailored for middle school to high school students.

The topics we deal with are difficult; sexual exploitation, suicide, sex trafficking, bullying, but the way in which we present these topics is both sensitive and appropriate according to which grade level we are speaking to. Contact us for more information, we’d love to talk with you.

Sex Trafficking and Exploitation Assembly

The fact is that all children are vulnerable to being exploited. It doesn’t matter if they come from a healthy home or if they are a runaway, traffickers use the internet to bait and lure kids into being sexually exploited. Say Something arms students with the warning signs and the resources to recognize when recruitment is happening and to SAY SOMETHING! We offer this assembly to middle school through high school. 

Bullying Assembly

In this assembly we touch on all the ways students are vulnerable, but focus more on the bullying aspect. We have speakers who share about their experience of being bullied and the devastating effects it had on them and their family and friends. Students are challenged to help one another, protect one another, encourage one another and most of all to speak up and SAY SOMETHING, whether it’s for themselves or for someone else.

We Are NOT For Sale!

We are revolutionaries.

We will #speakup against Injustice!

Teacher and Administrator Training

Youth need as many positive role models as possible, people who truly care about their present circumstances and their futures. Teachers make a huge impact on a child’s life and we believe equipping teachers and school administrators with the tools they need to recognize the signs of sex exploitation of minors is a crucial part of being able to win this fight! Say Something has specialized training for school employees that can be tailored to your schools needs.

R.A.G.E- Revolution Against this Generation’s Exploitation

The R.A.G.E. is an evening event that usually wraps up a week of school presentations in a region. This is time for students to invite their friends and family to come and experience some of what they had seen and heard at the assembly, but kicked up a notch, if that’s even possible! It is a way to reach out and start a grass roots movement in their community, getting everyone on board to #speakup and end the sexual exploitation of minors!

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Is human trafficking really an issue with today’s students?

A: According to the U.S. Department of Education, the children at risk are not just high school students–pimps and traffickers are known to prey on victims as young as 9. Traffickers may target minor victims through social media websites, telephone chat-lines, after-school programs, at shopping mall and bus depots, in clubs, or through friends or acquaintances who recruit students.

Q: Does Say Something take a moral and/or political stance?

A: Say Something takes a Civil Rights Stance. It is the right of every human being to be free. Our goal is to raise awareness and to empower students to recognize that if basic human rights are being violated they have the ability to Say Something.

Q:How will talking about human trafficking help my students?

A: Our research shows that students are already acutely aware of the sex industry, but not from the position of its inherent dangers. We take time to focus on the effects of sex trafficking on the victim and how to avoid becoming a victim. Through video, humor, survivor stories, and interactive dialogue students are encouraged to evaluate their surroundings, their relationships, and their acquaintances for signs of sex trafficking. They are then empowered with resources to help them effectively Say Something.

Q: Will students be exposed to inappropriate material in the assembly?

A: NO. Students will be educated in a way that does not expose them to inappropriate images or speech. Students will hear some difficult facts, see images that are related to slavery and hear from real life survivors of human trafficking. Say Something assembly is designed to be culturally relevant and sensitive. It is our hope that each student leaves the assembly feeling compelled to Say Something about this horrific tragedy facing America and the world.
