Body:
Drivers will see a new set of billboards while traveling in the Volunteer State as TBI continues to combat human trafficking.

January is National Human Trafficking Awareness Month. And for the second year, TBI is using billboards to help raise awareness. The billboards were put up as part of TBI's "IT Has To Stop" campaign.

“Human trafficking is modern-day slavery, it’s unacceptable, and it’s a crime in Tennessee,” TBI Director Mark Gwyn said. “We hope TBI’s public awareness campaign continues to shed some much-needed light on the issue, so we can increase the number of people who insist it has to stop in our state and beyond.”

The active billboards right now can be seen at:

• Nashville – I-24/40, at Fesslers Lane
• Memphis – I-55, west of South Third Street
• Chattanooga – I-75, near Ringgold Road
• Knoxville – Lovell Road, near I-40
• Johnson City – Roan Street, south of 11E
