Anti Human Trafficking Print Media FundProject led by Eyes Up Appalachia
About the project.
Though digital media allows Eyes Up Appalachia to reach a very broad audience, it does not always allow the organization to access the most at-risk population in rural areas where broadband is limited. In these instances, it is imperative that print media is used to reach those that are most vulnerable to becoming victims of human trafficking.
This project would provide funds to print digital media, allowing for distribution to libraries, food banks, schools, and other public places where it will be readily available for pick up. Along with flyers on what human trafficking is and is not (facts and myths), the signs of sex and labor trafficking and online recruiting, and how to spot it, there are also plans to print cards with the National Human Trafficking Hotline Number on it to place around the public spaces in the communities of Appalachian Ohio.
FAO staff comments.
Print media would allow Eyes Up Appalachia to connect with those most vulnerable to human trafficking in rural communities who lack access to broadband and online materials. These materials will be distributed across communities to food banks, libraries, and accessible public places with the goal of preventing human trafficking.
