LUBBOCK, Texas (KCBD) - Representatives from the community and state joined leaders of various organizations including United Supermarkets, Voice of Hope, One Voice Home, and Open Door to participate in the Texas Blue Sand Project.

The purpose of the event is to raise awareness of human trafficking on behalf of Human Trafficking Awareness Month.

The organizations will gathered at the Buddy Holly Hall of Performing Arts and Sciences Wednesday morning to spread blue sand in the cracks of sidewalks. This symbolizes how communities can prevent victims from falling through the cracks by raising awareness and education.

One Voice Home, Voice of Hope, and Open Door are organizations in the Lubbock community that work together to provide help for survivors of sex trafficking and sexual assault. While human trafficking can seem like a distant problem, it, unfortunately, happens everywhere, including in West Texas.
