A work of art can be a powerful outreach and educational tool, but it can be difficult to portray human rights violations such as human trafficking. If you are thinking about submitting a piece of your artwork to help raise awareness of human trafficking in the Sacramento region, here are some tips to keep in mind.
- You choose the mood of your piece. It can be shocking by using images of trafficking; or it can be hopeful by using images that represent rescue, restoration, and hope.
- You can rely on symbolic imagery that relates to human trafficking—such as barbed wire and bars—or that relates to rescue and restoration—such as building blocks, puzzle pieces, and clasped hands.
- All submissions are greatly appreciated and will help to put an end to slavery in the Sacramento Region.
