I received this message from a meetup member from another group I am in. I thought it would be beneficial to send it out to this group as well. The email is below the line.



To Artists in the Chicagoland Area:

The Illinois Rescue and Restore Coalition is a statewide collaborative dedicated to combating human trafficking in Illinois. In observation of National Human Trafficking Awareness Day on January 11, 2011, Illinois Rescue and Restore will be hosting an awareness-raising event in partnership with other local anti-trafficking organizations serving victims of trafficking in Illinois. We hope to feature and auction work from local artists who have created art that reflect the evils of human trafficking. We anticipate that proceeds will go to local organizations that serve victims of human trafficking.

In partnership with nearly 150 member organizations of law enforcement agencies, social service agencies, healthcare providers, and advocacy groups across the state, Illinois Rescue and Restore fights modern-day slavery by raising awareness of the problem of human trafficking and working to identify and serve victims of human trafficking in Illinois.

We would like to invite you to consider creating a piece of art that brings attention to the problem of human trafficking. A portion of the proceeds will be presented to each artist, and a portion of the proceeds will be used to fund local anti-trafficking efforts. In addition, a minimum auction bid for your work will be valued at your discretion.

We appreciate your consideration of creating and donating art that raises awareness of this modern-day form of slavery. Please feel free to contact either of us with questions. We are hoping to have all artist pieces complete and turned in by January 10th, but we would need to know if you are interested in participating in the auction by December 23rd.

Please contact if you are interested:
