ACDD partners with marketing company for human trafficking awareness campaign
“It’s a $150-billion-a-year business worldwide. And what’s prevalent is with Alabama and the location where we are with the interstates that run through – I65, I20, and then the new I22 corridor and then I10 down in Mobile – it’s a trafficking highway where these traffickers are bringing people back and forth, and it’s almost becoming sort of a hub for human trafficking. And that’s what we’re wanting to really bring awareness to and have that prevention there to help these people.“
Alabama Care Lead Anchor Alex Bimes is joined by Darryle Powell, executive director of the Alabama Council on Developmental Disabilities, and Jeff Davis, chief idea creator for Fowler Davis to discuss the unique partnership between their organizations and their campaign to raise awareness of human trafficking of individuals with disabilities.
