In the globalizing World, all people around the World can contact one another and immigrate to a different place to have a better life. But sometimes they cannot achieve the life they dreamed. These people are taken, sold and forced to work in inappropriate jobs. For this reason I used a supermarket trolley because there is a human trade in this World and people are sold without their will.
Airport become important place for human trafficking., they will transport the slaves by airplane. Through the boarding pass we can perceive the danger and save the innocent as soon as possible. National Human Trafficking Awareness Day is recognized annually in the United States on January 11, thus this boarding pass is invalid.
In my design, I putted together the different interpretations that would define our awareness of the global situation. The content of my art has always revolved around my current interests as I am commonly drawing fictional subjects out of an anime, manga, or a graphic novel. By combining the fictional subjects of shadows lurking within the background and an anime character struggling to free themselves from harm, it really weaves together the story to elucidate our awareness of the global situation.
The topic of human trafficking can be saddening and serious. This is something I did not want to neglect to portray, but I also wanted to show that there are solutions to this problem. The idea of “hope is what you bring” derives from the song Shadows After Dark, and I interpreted it as people having the ability to bring light to a dark situation. If people choose to reach out and help in any way they can, they can end up helping someone who is in need or those who might come face-to-face with this issue someday.
The victims were slaughtered like a livestock.
From child to adult, a solid education in values and in preventing present and future dangers is a good tool to avoid as far as possible being the object of human trafficking.

In this poster, I tried to show this issue involve in all continents and different nationalities.
Humans and especially children who are suffered from this abuse.
Children, who have been suffered from rape, in most cases don’t or can’t speak what has happened to them. They are afraid of the abuser, in fear that nobody cares or the shock is so large that they simply can’t think about that.
The poster from the children perspective asks to look at this issue. Start to care, be more aware and careful. It shows the action of a child when he is not afraid anymore and when he can finally tell the truth.
The hands in the poster form a bird yearning for freedom, holding a note. The black line is the symbol of money, and the drum sticks cut with the black line representing the bondage, signifying resistance to human trafficking.
