"In a world and a time where we pride ourselves on being free, it’s horrible to think that there are more people living in slavery than ever before,” says founder Mayer Dahan. “This is the start of a long effort to try to combat a very harmful industry."
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) January 10, 2016
The Dream Builders Project launched its inaugural international campaign to fund, aid, and raise awareness about human trafficking. Consisting of a series of photographs, a behind-the-scenes documentary, interviews with celebrity ambassadors such as Kristen Renton, limited edition merchandise, and an #ActAgainstHT selfie barcode challenge, the campaign’s main focus is to draw attention to this global issue and educate the community about how to identify the existence of human trafficking, and how to report it so that victims can be rescued. Supporting this active campaign are a variety of reputable organizations, including photographer Ash Gupta of 838 Media Group, Global Goods Partners, and the Los Angeles Police Department’s official Human Trafficking Unit. 100% of the proceeds raised from donations and merchandise sales will be directly donated to Not For Sale and its crucial work in assisting victims and survivors of human trafficking in the United States, and worldwide.
According to the State of California's Department of Justice, California is home to three of the FBI’s 13 highest child sex trafficking areas in the nation; Los Angeles, San Francisco and San Diego. These cities are part of a $32 billion industry that enslaves approximately 30 million people around the world. 80% of these victims are women and girls.
“In a world and a time where we pride ourselves on being free, it’s horrible to think that there are more people living in slavery than ever before,” says The Dream Builders Project’s founder Mayer Dahan. “This is the beginning of a long effort to try to combat a very harmful and damaging industry. We must protect each other to achieve a better future for humanity.''
With a concern for humanity, a mission to grow and develop our community, and a strategy to open people's minds to their ability to make a difference, The Dream Builders Project’s #ActAgainstHT campaign will empower the public and encourage them to make full use of their voices, their power, and their freedom to elevate our society.
