Certain Richmond businesses on Thursday will receive information posters about human trafficking that includes a hotline number as part of a Day of Action to combat the crime.

Following a 3 p.m. news conference at the West County Family Justice Center at 256 24th St. in Richmond, a group of community volunteers will set out to deliver the posters to local businesses such as bars and massage parlors as well as to transit centers and urgent care facilities.

Senate Bill 1193 requires that certain businesses post notices in plain view, similar to the poster you see below.

The Contra Costa District Attorney’s Office is collaborating with local law enforcement agencies and other groups on Thursday’s event.
