The SOLD Experience
Tuesday, February 19th and 20th, 2013. In the SURC Ballroom.
Open 9:00am -9:00pm each day (drop in at any time).
The Center for Diversity and Social Justice is hosting the SOLD Experience, an exhibit bringing attention to human trafficking. This multi-sensory exhibit combines technology with true stories to educate visitors about human trafficking locally and globally through the lives of victims in 9 different parts of the world. From child soldiers in South Sudan and forced labor in India to the commercial sexual exploitation of children in the USA, the exhibit addresses many forms of human trafficking of women, men, and children worldwide.
As visitors travel through the exhibit from country to country, they will learn about the many types of human trafficking by being exposed to real-life stories of modern-day slavery. Throughout the exhibit participants will learn how to make an impact in the fight against human trafficking. The exhibit is designed to utilize technology by the use of MP3 players and/or smart phones. MP3 players will be available on-site for participant use. Visitors end in the recovery room where they will learn about what Washington State and other organizations are doing to support survivors as well as put an end to human trafficking. Additionally, participants will be able to identify how they can play a role to end slavery. At the conclusion, visitors are encouraged to use social media to share their experiences going through the exhibit and learn more about human trafficking through QRL codes. *Important note: SOLD Experience is appropriate for ages 13 and up.
