The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation and Tennessee Department of Transportation rolled out a new campaign this week to compliment existing efforts to combat human trafficking in the state, the Tennessean reports. The new effort will focus on working with the state Department of Tourism to reach out to interstate travelers who might notice any suspicious activity. The campaign will feature posters of women in visitors centers across the state with captions such as, “You see a girl who can do anything. He sees a girl he can force to do anything.” In announcing the effort, the Tennessee Department of Tourism noted the posters would be seen by some 12 million visitors who pass through the welcome centers each year.
