A picture is worth a thousand words

On National Human Trafficking Awareness Day, January 11th, Polaris Project launched a month-long campaign to raise awareness about trafficking through photographs. We asked you to make a sign and tell the world that you want to take a stand against human trafficking. We received pictures from church groups, swim teams, artists and many others who joined together in the common desire to end human trafficking.  There were submissions from as far as Chab Dai, an anti-trafficking group based in Cambodia.

In particular, we want to give special thanks to a group of international students attending United World College, USA. They sent in our largest submission with a total of 36 photos!

This compilation of photos demonstrates how one idea can resonate across borders and bring people together from all walks of life. As a group united against trafficking, we can create a powerful force against slavery. If you haven’t already, please join us and become a part of our Grassroots Network.

Many thanks to everyone who submitted a picture. Your enthusiasm and dedication are an inspiration and can help unite us all against human trafficking.

To show our gratitude to all of you who submitted photos or took our Human Trafficking Awareness Day pledge, we have randomly selected five people to receive a DVD copy of Not My Life. These people will be notified shortly.
