Social Media Campaign to Stop Human Trafficking

April 2014

Social media campaign launched to support JLP anti-trafficking documentary

Local photographer, Mic Orlosky of the Portland Instagram Group, was in attendance at the Waiting for the Light premiere.  He learned that forms of social media, such as Instagram, have been used as recruitment methods for trafficking victims.  The Portland Instagram Group’s membership of over 500 individuals launched a campaign in support of the April 18, 2014 documentary screening.  Their goal was to show that social media can be a large part of the solution!  You can follow us on Instagram @JuniorLeaguePDX and search hashtags #WaitingForTheLight and #JLPDX to see some of the photos and add your own!
