On May 8, 2010 the Project Red Cord Response Team Launched its public awareness campaign by conducting its first street outreach. The team identified safe and effective access points for victim outreach by conducting field research trips and using online and media tools to gather information. The response team handed out beautiful gift bags filled with personal care items, journals, Information about support services offered by the Project Red Cord program and personal note cards written by team members to the women with inspirational messages encouraging the women we encountered that night on the street. The public awareness campaign will include regular bi-weekly street outreach and the distribution of outreach materials to community members, targeted education and meetings with community leaders, posting of hotline numbers and resources in red-flagged locations. After drug dealing, trafficking of humans is tied with arms dealing as the second largest criminal industry in the world, and is the fastest growing. We can’t do everything but we can do something!!

By raising public awareness on the issue of Human Trafficking, it will essentially lead to intervention & prevention.
