Human Trafficking is a cruel method of utilizing human lives for two common uses, sexual slavery, and forced labor. The recruiting, transporting, transferring, receiving and harboring of a person by force, coercion or other means for the purpose of exploitation are all gross violations of human rights. After researching the common methods of how individuals were trapped in this life style, the common word to pop up was “False Promises”.

This poster focuses on the idea of luring. This bad individual/figure (a demon or the devil) holds a lollipop as its tactic to lure in a victim; in this case children. The lollipop also plays as a hypnotic spiral to emphasize the idea. A snake is hidden within showing that this particular candy is not safe to eat. “FAUX PROMISES” refers to the promises or deal that the lurer will say in order to convince the victim (money, food, care, etc.) The word “FAUX” refers to faux candy which is fake candy that is often hand-made for props and decor.
