Filling the Cracks
After reading an article about human trafficking, Molly Gochman ’01 felt compelled to act. Experts estimate that close to 50 million people are enslaved worldwide.
“How can this huge issue be so invisible?” she asked herself. “And what can I do to help with the visibility of it?”
She responded by creating the Red Sand Project two years ago at Art Basel in Miami.
“I invite people to place red sand in sidewalk cracks to encourage us to be mindful of vulnerabilities that exist all around us,” she says. “The cracks are a metaphor for vulnerable populations who are most at risk of being exploited.”
