Mayor Mike McGinn and Metropolitan King County Councilmember Reagan Dunn presided Wednesday over the unveiling of a billboard that asks for the public’s help in stopping human trafficking and commercial sexual exploitation.

The billboard, in the 2100 block of Westlake Avenue North in Seattle, is one of 13 such displays between Bellingham and South Tacoma being donated by Clear Channel Outdoor as part of a campaign with the city and county. The donation amounts to $94,000 in advertising space.

Additionally, Clear Channel Entertainment+Media has donated $88,000 of airtime for hundreds of anti-trafficking public-service announcements to be aired on various radio stations.
