THE RED HAND CAMPAIGN
Stand with us against child trafficking.

The Red Hand Campaign is a photographic initiative visualizing CRI’s movement in actively fighting human trafficking by rescuing victims around the world. 

HOW YOU CAN JOIN US!

As of 2019, the International Labor Organization estimates 40.3 million victims of human trafficking globally.

  • 81% are trapped in forced labor
  • 25% are children
  • 75% are women and girls

The Red Hand Campaign is about awareness, but it's also a global call to join arms and support those on the front lines in the fight against human trafficking..

When you join the campaign, you'll take a picture with one hand painted red, imprinted with a white barcode that spells 2rescue. This representation symbolizes the commitment to:

  1. Rescue, Restore, and Raise Up™ people enslaved today
  2. Globally eradicate the purchase and sale of humans as commodities  

Share a picture of you with your Red Hand (toolkit sold here), and use our hashtag #2Rescue on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and other social media.

Take a moment to reflect on the reality that those 40.3 million victims are being bought and sold into sex and labor slavery, many for their whole lives.

Join the fight #2Rescue!
