Teens Against Human Trafficking Club Pays it Forward

Ankeny High School's Teens Against Human Trafficking (TAHT) club raised more than $400 to donate to "She's the First,"  an organization committed to supporting girls and women from under-served countries to be the first to get a college education in their family.
 
TAHT also received recognition for their work in the community from the Des Moines Civic Center.  The group was invited to attend the play Among the Darkest Shadows, a theatrical and dance piece that educates students about the stories and dangers of human trafficking in our world today.  The play's narrator gave the AHS club a direct shout-out from the stage for starting the teens against human trafficking movement that has now spread all over Iowa.
