Nita Belles, who visited Grand Rapids in May, 2017, has a message she wants us to deliver to the world . . . and to any woman trapped in prostitution --
You are recognized. You are valued.
You can change things.
Here is the project:
Between now and Art Prize [20 September - 8 October 2017], Our Sisters is contacting proprietors of local businesses and asking permission to post FREEDOM STICKERS in their premises.
FREEDOM STICKERS are made available to us by In Our Backyard, the Oregon non-profit organization founded by Nita Belles. CLICK HERE to see the sample sticker on the
In Our Backyard website.
SO . . .
Get a few friends together and call us.
Let us know that you want to be a part of West Michigan's anti-human-trafficking movement. We will meet with you at your convenience and plan with you the best way to place these messages where they will be seen.
Call (616) 448 8810 or reach out to email@example.com.
