Who is Affected? 

This one page document explains many of the elements of culture. 

We are a group of inquisitive minds that make sense of the relationships that exist between people and the culture they share.

In doing so, we unlock opportunities for growth with inspiring strategies that engage students and create cultural meaning. 

Human Trafficking

According to the International Labor Organization, human trafficking, which includes commercialized sexual exploitation, forced labor, and domestic servitude, denies freedom to some 20 million people around the world. Fifty-five percent are women and girls. Twenty-six percent are children. The Polaris Project, a nongovernmental organization that works to combat modern-day slavery and human trafficking, estimates that the total number of human trafficking victims in the U.S. alone reaches into the hundreds of thousands.

Human Trafficking

The latest global estimate according to the International Labor Organization (the United Nations agency that deals with global labor issues), calculates that nearly 21 million people are victims of human trafficking worldwide. Roughly 4.5 million of those victims are trafficked for the purpose of sexual exploitation.

Our mission at Day One is to reduce the prevalence of sexual abuse and violence as well as to support and advocate for those affected by it.


Day One's vision is to create a community that is free of sexual abuse and violence. We do this through leadership and action that is responsive to the needs of the community.

Social Justice Standards

Practicing cultural responsiveness is: 1) the ongoing process of learning how the values, beliefs, attitudes and traditions that grow from racial, ethnic, linguistic, religious, sexual orientation, gender identity, socio-economic status, disability status, or other affiliate groups contribute to our own and other people’s culture; 2) learning about personal circumstances, conditions, and experiences that influence our own and other people’s thinking, behaviors, and roles in their communities; 3) being mindful of the power and privilege differences and similarities between individuals and among groups of people; and 4) using this knowledge to work effectively with all people.
