Please join BYC Houston and Red Sand Project as we shine the light on human trafficking, learn how we can be of service and come together to raise the vibration of our city and beyond.

Red Sand Project
Molly Gochman is a New York City-based artist and activist. She created Red Sand Project, a participatory artwork in 2014 to raise awareness of the vulnerabilities that lead to modern-day slavery. The Project works to recognize those who are overlooked – and most at-risk of spending their lives being exploited for the profit of others. Sidewalk interventions invite people to take the time to fill sidewalk cracks with red sand and document their sidewalk transformations on social media using #RedSandProject. More than 150,000 Red Sand toolkits have been distributed in the United States and abroad. It is across the nation, in all 50 states, and in more than 70 countries such as Brazil, India, England and New Zealand. Participants include Ashton Kutcher, Miss Oklahoma, and Nicola Peltz, among hundreds of other people, organizations and groups. Thousands of Red Sand Project toolkits have been distributed in the United States and abroad. Interest on social media grows each day.
After practice, you are invited to make your own sidewalk installation. The installations are simple. You pour red sand in sidewalk cracks and take a photo of it to post to social media using the hashtag #RedSandProject. That’s it! We also encourage people to use chalk to write the name of the project, to host events, and to generally spread the word about the issue – but that’s up to you!
Music will be performed by Chris Lively, a Houston native – his melodies are sure to infiltrate your soul. Chris’ music can be found on various online platforms, including Spotify and Pandora – website is www.chrislivelymusic.com
