SALEM, OR -- Human Trafficking activists will kick off the Freedom Sticker campaign in Salem on Monday. The stickers, which offer help to victims of human trafficking, are designed to go in public bathroom stalls.

 

Nita Belles with In Our Backyard tells KBND News, "Many times the only time a victim of human trafficking is alone and not being watched is inside a restroom stall. And so they an send a text message and within two minutes have help on the way."

 

Human trafficking can take the form of forced sex or labor. The Oregon Legislature approved a bill in the last session to allow Freedom Stickers to be included in all OLCC license renewals for bars and restaurants. Belles says they will include "a strong request to place these inside their restroom stalls so that people can find help that they need."
 
Approximately 25,000 Freedom Stickers will be handed out beginning Monday.
