Human Trafficking Public Awareness Poster Campaign

Beginning in 2015, Good Women is focusing on awareness and education with its current project, The GWI Poster Campaign. This effort will unite and mobilize communities to reach out to their local businesses and inform them about Human Trafficking and the need for posting an awareness poster under California Senate Bill 1193/Civil Code 52.6.

According to this Bill, certain mandated businesses must display a legally compliant, and readily visible poster in a conspicuous location. The purpose of this poster is to raise awareness about victims of human trafficking and prevent future victims, and contains important contact information in various languages.

Businesses such as bars, adult or sexually oriented businesses, emergency rooms, massage parlors, and many other establishments that are likely to come in contact with traffickers or their victims, will be included in this campaign.

This interactive, core-integrative curricula, produced by A21, has now been introduced into high school classrooms and organizations across the United States, empowering thousands of our youth and adults to fight human trafficking with their knowledge.

The curricula, entitled “Bodies Are Not Commodities“, is now available digitally online here and will soon be available in the Spanish version.

Michelle, South Lake High School
“My students in AP Human Geography and Current Events are always engaged.”

Rebekah, The Linsly School
“This topic can serve as a global entry point to the US History of slavery and can help engage them in history and modern-day action. Also, the graphic design is stunning.”

Kara, St. Paul Preparatory School
