Bears - Awareness Ambassadors

Bears at 2014 SNR Conference


Human trafficking is ugly.  Bears are not.  So why do we have them?  Because they attract attention.  They have universal appeal.  Moreover, many people like to think that slavery - the concept of human beings as property - is a thing of the past.  So they may avoid asking about an advocacy bracelet, but curiosity about the bear will cause questions.  Our bear partners take their bears everywhere - different countries, workplaces, government offices, formal dinners. . .Place a bear on a table, on the counter while you bank, peeping from your backpack and presto, instant conversation.  it may be a short conversation - just a few words and perhaps a card where people can seek more information - but it spreads the word.


Below you can see where our bears have been:
