Is Your Business Among the Commercial Operations Required To Post These Awareness Signs?
Friday, September 30, is Statewide Human Trafficking Sign Day.
All are invited to join Texas Human Trafficking Prevention Task Force in raising awareness, and empower your community, by asking local businesses to post human trafficking awareness signs.
While some businesses are required by law (in Senate Bills 800 and 1831 and House Bills 3721 and 390 passed during the 87th Regular Legislative Session) to post human trafficking awareness signs, any business can do so voluntarily.
Various state agencies have created posters for different types of businesses that are required to post awareness signs. Some of these posters could be used by any business. Commercial businesses are recommended to post signs either near public entrances or in a private areas such as restrooms that are available to their customers or clientele so the sign can be viewed in private.
