LIFT believes that perceptions and attitudes towards victims of commercial sexual exploitation could only be changed via education and outreach. For that reason, LIFT has an active outreach and education programming for local agencies and organizations. Our outreach and education programming include:
- Lectures and workshops at agencies and universities on commercial sexual exploitation;
- Dispel myths about prostitution through attendance and participation in community forums and discussions;
- Actively participate in classroom-based education at local universities and schools to provide an alternative to academic narratives about “choice” by sharing stories about the often violent, dangerous, and dehumanizing realities of “the life”.
