Save Our Adolescents from Prostitution
S.O.A.P. stands for “Save Our Adolescents from Prostitution” and is a hands-on outreach to fight sex trafficking at large events and in communities. The mission of the program is to rescue victims being trafficked at hotels, to provide victims a number to call for help, to educate motels and hotels on the signs of trafficking, and to mobilize volunteers on a human trafficking outreach.
Founder, author, advocate and survivor, Theresa Flores, will be on hand to share her story and what we, as teachers, can do to make a difference. Join us while we listen as she tells her touching story and how she created S.O.A.P. Learn about what to look for and where to look in our own communities. Believe it or not, it is right in front of us!
After Theresa’s touching and eye-opening presentation all attendees will have the opportunity to take part in the volunteer portion of the program. The Community Outreach Committee has ordered 3,000 bars of soap to be labeled and bagged for future outreach events. This soap will be distributed to hotels right here in OUR communities in hopes of saving at least one human (one of our own students) from this nightmare! Please register to be a part of it!

Elected officials enact policies that affect our students, our schools and the daily lives of educators. Decisions regarding school funding, services, curriculum standards, licensure, class sizes and evaluations are all made by elected officials. As Ohio’s legislators consider policies that affect public education, it is critical that they hear from educators—the true experts on education issues. As teachers, faculty and education support professionals, OEA members have an obligation to get involved in these decisions and make their voices heard.
Being informed is half the battle.
