  • Combating Human Trafficking announcement (Repeat)

Good morning high school!

On Thursday April 27th, the Combating Human Trafficking (CHT) group will host a Speaker Evening, with guests speakers Shihoko Fujiwara and Aiki Segawa from NPO Lighthouse (a support center for human trafficking victims in Japan) at the loft from 6:00~7:30pm. Grades 8~11 may have a brief speaker session during the day, but the evening will feature a more in-depth conversation on the unresolved issue of human trafficking in Japan.

Entrance is free for all, but donations of ¥300 and more will reward you with an exclusive YIS CHT sticker, so mark your calendars for the 27th of April 6:00~7:30pm! This event is open to students and parents, so please talk to your parents about this.

We hope to see you there! (YIS Combating Human Trafficking)
