7 foot tall dollbox to send “Children Aren’t Playthings” message

children-aren't-playthingsShared Hope International will erect a seven-foot tall pink dollbox with the message “Children Aren’t Playthings” at Arizona State University, Grand Canyon University, Glendale Community College, and downtown Phoenix to raise awareness of child sex trafficking, specifically during the Super Bowl.

Child sex trafficking affects an estimated 100,000 American children each year. Recent efforts by Arizona law enforcement, leaders and advocacy groups have targeted the anticipated increase in sex trafficking activities during the Super Bowl.

According to Shared hope, “The “Children Aren’t Playthings” dollbox campaign is intended to challenge the dangerous objectification of prostituted individuals, including victims of child sex trafficking.”

On Saturday, January 31, Shared Hope’s exhibit will be held in conjuncture with Streetlight USA, a local organization aimed at stopping child sex trafficking, and the Scarlet Cord, an art installation by Pamela Alderman.

  1. If the figure inside was a girl from Mexico it would perfectly reflect the drug cartels selling their transporters to the likes of Adelita, Raul and their Grijalvallistas, including the mayor, clown council and board of stupids, to further build their political base.

    After all, the legal age of consent in Mexico is 12 and up to 70% of all the female crossers are molested on their way over.

    A small, very small price to pay to fill the seats of TUSD. Each child is worth around $6000 to H.T. Sanchez.
