Human Trafficking Awareness Month

Human Trafficking Awareness Month

Paint with us at one of our pop-up awareness events during the month of January!

January is National Human Trafficking Awareness month and each year we hold an in person event where we educate our local community about the realities of modern day slavery and discuss how they can be a part of the solution. This year we will be holding a couple of events at various host sites accross the community.

Attendees will learn about the issue and how they can fight human trafficking in their own community while also joining a large group effort in painting pieces of a mural that will be installed in our new Worthwhile Thrift store in Collegeville. It will be similar to "Paint by Numbers", so no artistic skills are required!

ABOUT THE MURAL

The mural will span 128 feet, essentially running the entire length of the back wall in the new store! It will feature quotes from survivors of human trafficking and our hope is that it will have a lasting and positive impact on each person that walks through the door and sees it.

Here's how this will work:

  1. The design, to be completed by a local artist, will be printed on mural cloth.
  2. The mural cloth will be cut into large pieces, with a few pieces of the mural being at each pop-up site.
  3. Attendees who join us at the awareness pop-up events can participate by simply painting in the lines. Paint, brushes, and other supplies will all be provided.
  4. Once all pieces are painted the mural will be installed on the wall at the new thrift store.

Our goal is to inspire our community to get involved and know that their involvement is making a difference in the lives of women in our communities.
