A section of Walton Avenue, between 149th and 150th in New York City's Bronx borough, has some new graffiti gracing one of its walls. This, however, is not the work of neighborhood miscreants, but a call to action to end human trafficking.
The mural, created by a group of students, is dedicated to Somaly Mam - an anti-trafficking activist - and is part of a project to raise awareness by the Somaly Mam Foundation.
Organizers of the project say that the mural allowed the kids to work together to raise awareness in their communities.
The students say the mural is their way of raising their voices against human trafficking and that they hope that when people see the mural they will add their own voices to fight against human trafficking.
