FBI San Francisco / Deadline: 02/23/20
Human Empowerment Art (H.E.Art) is a Federal Bureau of Investigation, San Francisco Division initiative that brings together the Consulate General of Mexico in San Francisco, the San Francisco Collaborative against Human Trafficking, the South Bay Coalition to End Human Trafficking, and Love Never Fails to create a platform to raise awareness of the significant impact of human trafficking in the community through art.
Human trafficking continues to be the fastest growing criminal industry in the world. Our endeavor uses a creative and artistic approach to raise awareness of the issue as there are so many victims who cannot do so. Our initiative will unite community leaders, residents, and artists to highlight the devastating and lasting mental, physical, and emotional effects that sex and labor trafficking have on the lives of victims, their families, and their communities.
