Students Against Sex Slavery (SASS): Dedicated to helping end sex slavery in Arkansas, SASS holds events that promote awareness and directly partners with the only anti-sex slavery organization in AR, located in Little Rock. We raise money each semester to support a rescued girl through treatment and support the organization by working at their fundraising events. Although SASS specifically focuses on sex slavery in Arkansas, topics related to sex slavery within the United States and around the globe will also be addressed.

TWP will put on many events throughout the year like the 10 Days project, in which students for ten days only drink water so that they can help provide clean water to those without adequate access.
