West Tennessee Health Educators gathered to prepare bags of red sand for distribution across West Tennessee as part of the Red Sand Project. The Red Sand Project uses sidewalk art installations to reach thousands of individuals about the vulnerabilities that can lead to human trafficking. Participating locally were Jennifer Siner, Natalie Boyd, Mia McNeal, Anna Carver, Robyn Hatler, Kelsey Warren, Haley Renner, Callie Pierce, Alvin Wright, Linda Woods and Amber Staten.

Public Health Educators gathered at the West Tennessee Regional Health Office on June 24, 2022 to prepare hundreds of bags of Red Sand for distribution in nineteen rural counties across West Tennessee. The Red Sand Project originated as a participatory artwork created by Molly Gochman using sidewalk art installations to reach thousands of individuals about the vulnerabilities that can lead to human trafficking.
Today, there are over 40.3 million people in slavery. The Tennessee Department of Health and community partners across the state join together for the fourth consecutive year to participate in the movement to end Human Trafficking.
