International Exhibit 'ARTS TO END SLAVERY' BRINGS DISCUSSION ABOUT HUMAN TRAFFICKING INTO THE OPEN
Sep 4, 2017 | By: by Mariana D'Alberto July29, 2017
A few weeks ago I sat down with Mariana D'Alberto from Photographers Without Borders Magazine to talk about my recent travels to Nairobi for HAART Kenya and my current photo project "Faces Behind Atrocity." The series will be exhibited as part the UNODC - United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime and the International Organization for Migration (IOM) campaigns during "World Day against Trafficking in Persons." The exhibition will include the stories of victims to familiarize people with the issue of trafficking and the fact that it is close to them. The series will be exhibited in front of the Kenya National Archives in the city centre. The hope is to create awareness with pictures which can help drive the message of a public campaign. Thank you so much to journalist Mariana D'Alberto for the feature.
Most people believe trafficking happens somewhere else. Awareness is key and simple. Everyone can take a minute and talk about trafficking in their own space. You can also join the movement by promoting and supporting organizations that work to fight human trafficking.
If you or someone you know is a victim or survivor of human trafficking, you are not alone and there are resources available to you.
