TRAFFICKING

airports is to organize art exhibitions and training as a means of raising awareness amongst travellers, airport staff and the local community on the issue of human trafficking. From 22 May—31 August 2015, ATL featured more than 80 pieces of artwork from students and professional artists that addressed the issue of human trafficking. The project, called Freedom Expressions ATL, educated over 100,000 visitors through artwork, public service announcements and opportunities for training of airport employees, vendors and ancillary workers. Coverage of Freedom Expressions ATL including visuals of artwork, public service announcements. Moreover, the opening reception by the CNN Freedom Project was broadcast by CNN International in over 20 countries. Example of the artwork presented at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta Airport

IHTI can assist airports with many different kinds of activity, such as: • organizing an airport art exhibition with professional artists recruited as exhibitors; • inviting students, parents, school personnel and local officials to visit the airport; • providing video training modules for a specific audience such as airport staff, taxi drivers, or vendor personnel to familiarize themselves with how to spot human trafficking and what action to take; • promoting the airport as an organization and airport employees as collaborators in ending human trafficking; • engagement of existing local anti-human trafficking organizations; and • providing public service announcements to be shown both in the airport and on additional media. The IHTI can be contacted through Deborah Richardson, Executive Vice President, National Center for Civil and Human Rights, at drichardson@civilandhumanrights.org.
