Freedom Stickers save lives!
Over 500,000 Freedom Stickers containing the National Human Trafficking hotline are strategically posted in public restrooms nationwide. When a trafficking survivor calls or texts this hotline, they are offered hope and help.
A 2016 study from Northeastern University found that one of the most effective ways to increase human trafficking arrests is by posting the National Human Trafficking Hotline in public places. A public restroom is a private and safe place for a victim to reach out for help.

Freedom Stickers were created by IN OUR BACKYARD in collaboration with survivors and first used in Central Oregon in 2011. IN OUR BACKYARD Founder and President, Nita Belles worked in collaboration with Oregon State Representative Gail Whitsett, advising to pass HB 3143 requiring Freedom Stickers go out with every renewed liquor license in the state. Additionally, she worked with Senator Hansell, to pass SB 375 which mandated that an 8.5” X 11” version of Freedom Stickers be placed inside the stall of every rest stop restroom stall in Oregon.

IOB has two Freedom Stickers Bills,
- HB 3143 was passed in 2015, mandating that Freedom Stickers must go out with every renewal of a liquor license in the state of Oregon. https://olis.oregonlegislature.gov/liz/2015R1/Downloads/MeasureDocument/HB3143/Enrolled
- SB 375 was passed in 2017, mandating that Freedom Stickers (although it ended up being an 8.5” X 11” version without our logo because it’s against the law to use a logo because that would be considered advertising) be placed inside the restroom stall of all the rest areas in Oregon. https://olis.oregonlegislature.gov/liz/2017R1/Downloads/MeasureDocument/SB375/Enrolled
