Placeness of Trafficking
By joining forces with others working to end trafficking in Minnesota, we explored the types of places implicated in sex trafficking and the potential role of design solutions. Findings point to sex trafficking of women and girls in Minnesota happening everywhere around us: from cyberspace to hotel rooms and bathrooms in transit spaces, from public to private places, from the obvious to the unexpected. Design parameters we identified as conducive to trafficking or not, include space planning, color choices, and code regulations.
EXPANDING DESIGN INTERVENTIONS
Below, you can see how particular building types get implicated in sex trafficking. You can use these calls to build collaborations, develop design interventions, and expand on ideas and resources.
