U.S. Department of Homeland Security
One Voice. One Mission. End Human Trafficking
In June we began a partnership with the Department of Homeland Security’s Blue Campaign's national public awareness campaign designed to educate the public, law enforcement, and other industry partners to recognize the indicators of human trafficking, and how to appropriately respond to possible cases.
In mid-August, we were happy to see our efforts to create an effective media campaign flood South Dakota from Sioux Falls (Mnihaha) to Rapid City (Mniluzahan). Now our logo and website address, alongside the Blue Campaign, are being advertised on billboards, online social media ads, and radio announcements.
The also have a Poster Awareness Series:
Native Communities Awareness Poster Series
These posters were created to raise awareness of human trafficking among Native communities. Informed by Native survivors of human trafficking, the series uses culturally-relevant images and messages. Organizations working to reach Native communities with information about human trafficking can display these posters in locations like schools, community centers, and offices. View/Download HERE.
