Graphics and Artwork for Blogging About Slavery

Do you want to spread awareness of modern slavery by blogging about it?  Looking for a graphic or photo to illustrate your post?  Below are some  you can use.  The photos are either licenced under Creative Commons, have statements allowing their use on the website, or I've contacted the artist and they have given permission for these to be used by others blogging about slavery.

PLEASE DO READ THE TERMS LISTED UNDER THE IMAGE.  Credit is usually required, and sometimes notification, and some may not be used commercially (which may mean no use on commercial blogs) so make sure to read the text under each graphic to see what you need to do to use it. Also, please DO NOT REMOTE LINK, as this slows down the servers of the sites these graphics are from. Save to your own computer then upload to your blog.

Trafficking Series by Talinakirra

Talinakirra has a series of 9 infographics, each with an image, a word, and a sentence with information about human trafficking. No credit or link back is required to use these images. In her words, "they are there to spread awareness and anyone who wants to use them can, no credit needed." However, if you would like to give credit you can use the following code:
