THE LAST WITCH
SOCIAL IMPACT CAMPAIGN
Though the Witch Trials happened over 330 years ago, the effect is still felt today, in descendants and society at large. The trials contributed to changes in court procedures, including instituting rights to legal representation, cross- examination of accusers, and the presumption that one is innocent until proven guilty.
Our social impact campaign will address issues of bullying and harassment:
The Salem Witch Trials involved physical and verbal bullying to get people to confess to witchcraft.
Around 16% of high school students experience cyberbullying and more than 1 out of 5 middle school and high school students experience physical or verbal bullying.
People who are bullied or who bully experience long-term trauma and health issues.
