You can sell drugs once. You can sell a human being repeatedly. 


Human Trafficking is a global issue, but some are surprised to find out it happens right here in Tennessee. 

Here’s a current active case map of human trafficking cases in our state from End Slavery Tennessee.  Make note: This case map is the TIP OF AN ICEBERG.


July 27-August 3, 2020

The last week of July is Human Trafficking Awareness Week in Tennessee – as such, we are working with End Slavery Tennessee and the TN Department of Health in Red Sand Week TN to shed some light on the issue of human trafficking. Red Sand Week is part of a larger movement called the Red Sand Project, which is an interactive art installation where participants symbolically pour red sand into sidewalk cracks to represent human trafficking victims.
