When Places Speak



October 10, 2015- January 3, 2016

when places speak


Juvenile sex trafficking is attached to places—where youth are recruited, where ads are posted on line, where purchasers meet victims, where law enforcement stops trafficking, and where victims can recover and heal. When Places Speak aims to start dialogues around the places related to sex trafficking and an awareness of the role design plays in this community concern.
