Designers Against Child Slavery is a Florida based non-profit organization that empowers creatives to rise up against sex trafficking and the sexual exploitation of children. They leverage the talents of a global network of artists, from nearly 20 different countries, in order to raise awareness and create a source of funding for the prevention and restoration of survivors of trafficking. A few weeks ago they announced the release of it’s third exhibition entitled: Reclaim. Consisting of work centered around the theme of hope and freedom, “Reclaim” was produced by over 40 artists from around the globe over the course of the past 10 months. Reclaim is based around the story of a girl named Mint.
Mint is a former trafficking victim and a current employee of DACS friends at The Blind Project in their Biographe Lab in Bangkok, Thailand. They’ve shared Mint’s story to provide personal insight into her experiences and hopefully inspire you to share her story with your friends and family.
