Design Against Trafficking

Frederick Douglass and Sojourner Truth used their oratorical skills to speak out against enslavement. Harriet Beecher Stowe wrote against enslavement with such verve Abraham Lincoln allegedly quipped upon meeting her "So you're the little woman who wrote the book that made this great [Civil] war!"* Auguste Francois Biard, whose painting "The Slave Trade" can be seen at this link, used his paintbrush to great effect in order to advance the abolitionist cause. Throughout history, the creative have powered social movements.

The fight against human and labor trafficking is not so different. Design Against Trafficking recently launched a website that shares resources and examples of how design can be a weapon in the fight against modern-day enslavement. Architecture, games, clothing, and graphic design are all featured. Click the button above to learn more!
