Human Trafficking Awareness Day is observed on January 11th each year. The day aims to raise awareness about human trafficking and to encourage actions to address the issue. Human trafficking is a form of modern-day slavery that involves the use of force, fraud, or coercion to exploit individuals for labor or commercial sex. It is a global problem that affects people of all ages, genders, and backgrounds, and it is often associated with organized crime. The day is used to educate the public on the issue, as well as to advocate for policies and programs to combat trafficking and support survivors.
Today is Human Trafficking Awareness Day, a day designated by Congress in 2007. Learn more about what your country is doing to #EndHumanTrafficking: https://t.co/zYsOJNuuWg and join our #WearBlueDay campaign by sharing a photo using the hashtag and tagging @jtip_state.
