Human trafficking is the second largest and fastest growing criminal industry in the world with more than 40 million people living in slavery-like conditions throughout the world. It violates basic human rights.
In this poster, reaching out for help, a barcoded hand silhouette against orange background represents human slavery victims living in precarious and terrifying conditions. The cut on the barcode and hand states the theme of this design—Stop Human Trafficking, which would liberate millions of exploited victims. Not only do the flying birds symbolize freedom, but their upward motion indicates the notion of hope.
