Although preteen and teen girls are one of the most at-risk populations for being trafficked, there are very few tools that help girls understand trafficking in a way that allows them to discuss the issue and use critical thinking skills. Say No More is a card game that helps girls learn about trafficking by reacting to romantic relationship scenarios.
For pre-teen girls at risk of sex trafficking, Say No More is a tool that allows them to reflect on uncomfortable situations, healthy relationship boundaries, and practice saying no. For social workers and educators who facilitate the game, Say No More is a tool that allows them to easily get a pulse on risk factors in the groups they already work with and gently introduce the issue of trafficking to an at-risk population.
The game was developed by Michelle Kwon, Meghan Lazier and Robin Newman through graduate level coursework at the School of Visual Arts Master of Fine Arts in Design for Social Innovation program.
