Thank you to all of the volunteers, artists, sponsors and community members that made this project possible!
The I-94 Project was designed to create heightened awareness of human trafficking during peak 2017 summer travel season, Memorial Day to Labor Day along the I-94 corridor in southeastern Wisconsin from the border of Illinois to south of Milwaukee.
I-94 is known as a circuit used by traffickers to transport victims from Chicago to Milwaukee, Madison, Eau Claire, Minneapolis, the North Dakota oil fields and many stops in between.
As a result, truck stops, rest stops, and hotels have become common places that victims frequent. Education is the number one way to stop trafficking.
Our goal was to give both the public and the victims the tools needed to get help and prevent further victimization and support the businesses who do not invite this criminal activity to their establishments with training and resources.
