The Sold Project is "a grassroots movement dedicated to exposing the truth behind child prostitution through multi-media and the collaborative response of individuals striving to make a change." Multi-media guru Dan Portnoy has been working hard to get their <a href="http://thesoldproject.com/">web presence</a> up and running, and has created a hub of social justice action with the team including founder Rachel Sparks and fellow Fuller student Rachel Goble. These folks are all very encouraging and inspiring as the confront the issue that is much closer to home that we'd like to admit.
Just recently, they've asked folks to put the sold logo on a picture of themselves in their facebook/myspace profiles until 4/22 to raise awareness. More info and the logo file are at http://thesoldproject.com/2008/04/14/get-sold if you want to "get sold" yourself. There is also a growing pool of these pictures here in a flickr group called "get-sold." It's a great way to get people involved and spread the word in your own little circles on the internet.
Also, if you're in Pasadena or LA, there is a benefit concert featuring local bands including <a href="http://profile.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=user.viewprofile&friendid=11122978">Leap Year</a> as well as an art auction this Friday 6pm at Levitt Pavilion.
