To raise awareness about human trafficking in Nebraska, a group of University of Nebraska–Lincoln students created the Slave Free Nebraska campaign with the assistance of advertising and public relations professor Sriyani Tidball. Lincoln's artists are using park benches as their canvas and will incorporate the internationally recognized Human Trafficking Blue Heart image.
The Bench Art Project will be unveiled Friday, Dec. 2 at 1:30 p.m. in Hewit Place at 1155 Q Street. Refreshments will be provided and a short program will begin at 2 p.m. on the 6th floor of the Schorr Presidential Suite. Following the program the benches will be unveiled in the 12th and P Streets corridor. The benches will be on display during the First Friday festivities that evening.
