Street Art for Mankind (SAM) uses art to campaign against human trafficking. Its latest project includes a series of murals in New York City that represent the experiences of victims of modern slavery. The images are meant as an "allegory of the issue," not a direct representation of the individual victims.
This image tells the story of Henriette, who migrated from Togo to France at the age of 14. She told SAM that her parents had sent her there to work for a woman in return for education. However, she says she did not go to school, and instead spent almost five years working in the house, sleeping on the floor and eating leftovers. French artist, Jo Di Bona created the mural, located on Cliff Street.
