Human Trafficking Public Awareness Poster Campaign

District Attorney Thien Ho stands with district attorneys, law enforcement leaders, city officials and community organizations across California in taking proactive measures to combat human trafficking and the sexual exploitation of children.

Under Senate Bill 1193, the state of California mandates that businesses and organizations fitting a certain criteria display a readily visible poster to raise awareness about victims of human trafficking with resource information, including hotline numbers to seek help or report unlawful activity.

The public awareness and poster campaign ensures select businesses display resource information for victims themselves to seek help as well as help employees and the public identify and rescue victims.

A letter signed by then District Attorney Jan Scully and Sheriff Scott Jones was sent to Sacramento County businesses and organizations that fall under the new law to advise them of their responsibility to display a trafficking poster on their premises. A free poster will also be provided to the businesses that effectively presents the information for the intended target audience and meets all of the requirements of the law.

This locally designed 11″ x 14″ downloadable poster is being provided for your convenience. It includes all three posting languages condensed into one easy to use notice and meets all other requirements of the law.

REQUIRED: Senate Bill 1193 Poster (PDF or JPG): Printer settings will need to be adjusted for 11″ x 14″ paper size. If your printer does not provide an 11″ x 14″ paper size, it can be printed on 11″ x 17″ (standard ledger) size paper.

OPTIONAL: In addition to displaying the above mandated 11″x14″ poster, business and establishments may also display a non-mandated 8 1/2″x11″ poster with an alternative language.
