Zonta Club of Savannah conducts ‘Red Sand Project’ for US National Human Trafficking Awareness Day

The Zonta Club of Savannah, USA, observed National Human Trafficking Awareness Day on 11 January by conducting the Red Sand Project in Forsyth Park, a focal area of the city.

Zontians and the general public participated in filling sidewalk cracks in various areas surrounding the park with red sand and placing signs calling on all to stop human trafficking and giving the national hotline number for reporting possible human trafficking activity.

The red sand in the cracks represented a metaphor for being aware of human trafficking and not allowing its victims to “fall through the cracks” of society.  During the course of the day, hundreds of people walked over or drove by the sand-filled cracks.
