The NO Project works with young people around the world. Please join us!
Do what you LOVE and create change at the same time. Be bold, be brave, be respectful, be well-informed. And never doubt that one person can make a (huge) impact.
Step One: Get Smart. Learn. Watch videos, learn about different forms of slavery and human trafficking.
Important: Please note The NO Project does not support images or portrayal of slavery and trafficking that re-exploits the victim, or sensationalises the crime. Images such as duct tape over mouths, barcodes, chains, beaten faces do not represent the crime accurately or respectfully. Contact us to find out about our Guidelines for Artists.
Step Two: Ask yourself : ‘What do I like doing?’ Sport? Music? Reading? Art? Creating events with your friends? Do what you are passionate about. Use that talent and skill to educate others. And remember – we need powerful art/actions not ‘perfect’ art/actions.
Step Three: Create a team. Make a plan. Talk to people about what you want to do. Be bold. Ask for support. What do you want the outcome to be?
