Ahead of the Sturgis Motor Cycle Rally, the FHA is launching an awareness campaign. Beginning next week, just ahead of the rally, the Family Heritage Alliance, with the assistance of Free International and other ministries and organizations, will launch an awareness campaign against human trafficking and sex slavery. Radio and TV PSAs with Representative Kristi Noem, South Dakota Attorney General Marty Jackley, and U.S. Attorney Brendan Johnson will hit the airwaves for the campaign. Also, you will see a billboard on Interstate 90 right outside of Sturgis, as well as several digital billboards around the area.
Update: Be watching for the video spots below on your local TV stations. Also, a second billboard is up on Mt. Rushmore Road just past Tower Road. And lastly, due in large part to the work of our Tess Franzen, SD Governor Dennis Daugaard has proclaimed August “Human Trafficking Awareness Month”! Click here to read the proclamation.
Last year, nine men were charged with sex trafficking during the Sturgis Rally. You might be interested in reading: Belle Fourche man found guilty of sex trafficking during rally.
