NOVA-HTI believes it is important to begin educating our children at a young age about Modern Day Slavery by having age appropriate conversations with them.

One of our amazing volunteers talks to her 9 year about this issue, and her daughter created this collage during her Virginia studies class to show people that slavery still exists in Virginia. Here is some info from mom describing the collage: “Notice a clock person breaking chains to show that’s it’s time to end slavery in our state of VA, and the Cardinal which is the state bird of Virginia looking on! Pretty proud of my little abolitionist!”
