Tennessee Department of Health participates in Red Sand Project to raise awareness on human trafficking
The Tennessee Department of Health is participating in the Red Sand Project for the third year in a row. This project is held during Human Trafficking Awareness Week; which is July 25 through the 31st. Organizers aim to raise awareness on human trafficking in the state. The Red Sand Project is an art installment that calls on community members to participate. Counties across the state of Tennessee will take part by pouring non-toxic red sand into sidewalk cracks. This symbolizes the victims of human trafficking that fall through the cracks. Other ways community members can participate is by creating yard signs or other artistic demonstrations. Human trafficking is one of the fastest growing criminal industries in the country, and the Red Sand project urges communities to spread awareness by taking part next week.
