Red Sand Rally & Family Safety Fair

July 27 @ 10:00 am 1:00 pm

In honor of World Day Against Trafficking in Persons, Chains Interrupted is hosting the Red Sand Rally & Family Safety Fair on July 27th from 10am – 1pm in the Marion Uptown Artway. This will kick off the local Red Sand Project, which is a worldwide effort to raise awareness of human trafficking by pouring red sand in the cracks of sidewalks. The grains of sand represent the millions of children and adults who often fall through the cracks and are exploited daily. July 27th will begin a week-long social media campaign featuring local churches, businesses and community members who are pouring red sand at their homes, businesses and places of worship to remind us all that human trafficking is right before our eyes, yet often goes unnoticed.
The event will begin at 10am with speakers, including someone whose life has been directly impacted by human trafficking and others who are doing their part in putting an end to human trafficking. After the rally, there will be games and fun activities for families and youth of all ages, including face painting, balloon animals and a chance to pour red sand or pick up sand to pour at home. Local law enforcement will be providing child fingerprinting and a variety of other organizations dedicated to the health, safety and wellbeing of children and our community overall will be there to promote safety.
