Valentines Against Human Trafficking

Share the Love and Fight Slavery This Valentine’s Day

The Hunters: Into each other. Not into Human Trafficking.

The Polaris Project is currently running an HT awareness campaign called  “___________” against Human Trafficking that ends on February 14th, Valentine’s Day 2012.  It’s an EASY way to raise awareness among your friends.  Just take a pic, post it on Facebook and email it to Polaris Project so they can post it on their blog too. Then ask your friends to do it as well.  It may give you the opportunity to have a conversation about this issue for the first time with some people. And it will definitively help Polaris Project send the message that everyday folk like you and me may have many interests, but we all care about modern slavery and want it to stop.  An important message to send to legislators and companies alike.

It Was Easy

You can try what I did.  It was easy.  I made one sign that had a space and then said “Against Human Trafficking.”  Then I cut up another paper into 6ths, wrote the appropriate descriptive category on one and taped it to the poster.  After I did my pic I picked up a marker, the tape and the other 5 pieces of paper and went around replacing the category piece for each person who participated.   If you don’t want to drive around town tracking down your friends, post your pic on Facebook or text it to friends and ask them to do the same.  EASY.  If you’d like to do this, just get the pics emailed to info@polarisproject.org by Valentines Day.

Here are some my friends and I did so far.

Laura: Into gaming. Not into modern slavery.

Nikki: Into motherhood. Not into human trafficking.

Mark: Into granddaughters. Not into modern slavery.
