Raising Awareness about Human Trafficking
The Red Sand Project was first launched by Molly Gochman in 2014. It came about as a response to a realization that there are tens of millions of individuals who live in modern slavery – including those in forced marriages, forced labor, or sexual exploitation. She sought a way to raise public awareness and engagement and began by filling the cracks of the sidewalks around the Art Basel Miami Beach pavilion with red sand.Download this project Sheet
