Human Trafficking Prevention Bill Implemented in Oregon State!
IN OUR BACKYARD worked with legislators to pass Senate Bill 375 which calls for posters replicated from our Freedom Stickers to be placed in all Travel Information Center managed rest areas in Oregon. This bill was signed into law in 2017 and is now being implemented!
We are working with state officials who are posting and will maintain these life-saving posters. As of mid-November, the posters will have been installed all along the I-5 Corridor in Oregon and in every state-managed rest area.
Senator Hansell, who sponsored the bill, said, “I am so glad these posters have been installed in the rest areas…Even if just one individual is saved from these posters, SB 375 would have been well worth it.” Click here to read more.
