Location: 
Starts at the Intersection of Broad and Spring Garden St, finishes at City Hall
Philadelphia, PA 19130
United States

Join us as we raise awareness about vulnerabilities that can lead to human trafficking and exploitation.
Participants will be given bags of red sand to pour into the sidewalk cracks along the walk as part of the global Red Sand Project installation, an activist artwork created to raise awareness of human trafficking and modern-day slavery.

Walkers will fill sidewalk cracks with red sand as we travel from Spring Garden Street to City Hall, and then share images of the transformation with the global community using #RedSandProject. In addition to the red sand, walkers will carry signs in support of human trafficking awareness and prevention.
Following is the event agenda:

  • 10:15 a.m. Organize at Broad and Spring Garden streets
  • 10:45 a.m. Begin Red Sand Walk to City Hall via Broad Street 
  • 12 Noon Press Conference at City Hall
