Raise Awareness of Human Trafficking by Wearing Blue on January 11
Human trafficking affects millions across the globe. January is National Human Trafficking Prevention Month (HTPM) and a time for everyone to come together to raise awareness of and help combat this heinous crime.
January 11 marks National Human Trafficking Awareness Day, also known as #WearBlueDay. On this day, Blue Campaign invites you to:
- Wear blue, the international color of human trafficking awareness, to state your commitment to help save lives. Need inspiration? See how others have participated in previous years.
- Post a photo of yourself, or with others, on social media using the hashtag #WearBlueDay. You can also download ready-to-use #WearBlueDay graphics and captions to post on your social channels to spread the word.
- Empower others in your community to do the same.
This January, the Campaign will also host two public Human Trafficking 101 webinars — one in English and one in Spanish— on January 10th and 16th. Register to attend and invite others to learn how to recognize and report suspected human trafficking cases.
Play a role to help end trafficking.
