Help Tackle Trafficking

Play a role to help end trafficking.

Were you able to participate in #WearBlueDay on January 11? The fight doesn't end there. Continue #TacklingTrafficking by using Blue Campaign's free anti-human trafficking guides, toolkits, materials, and more.

Help play a role to end human trafficking by:

  • Learning the facts about human trafficking.
  • Learning key indicators of the crime.
    • Not all indicators listed are present in every human trafficking situation, and the presence or absence of any of the indicators is not necessarily proof of human trafficking.
  • Raising awareness of human trafficking within your community or industry.
    • Share Blue Campaign materials; engage with us on social media (@DHSBlueCampaign); educate your staff, stakeholders, and communities; sign up for our newsletter; or reach out to partner.
  • Reporting suspected trafficking incidents.
    • The safety of the public as well as the victim is important. Do not attempt to confront a suspected trafficker directly or alert a potential victim to any suspicions. It is up to law enforcement to investigate suspected cases of human trafficking.

Join the fight to end human trafficking by raising awareness of this heinous crime in your community. Blue Campaign has a wide variety of human trafficking awareness materials to help educate the public to watch out for signs and indicators of trafficking and report suspected trafficking to law enforcement.

  • Document Library: Access the Blue Campaign document library. Some of these materials are available in print format.
  • Human Trafficking Training: Explore Blue Campaign's available training resources.
  • Awareness Videos: Access Blue Campaign videos available for download to spread awareness of the signs and indicators of human trafficking.
  • Industry-Specific Materials: Individuals working in particular industries or with specific audiences may be more likely to observe human trafficking by nature of their day-to-day job duties or surroundings. Navigate Blue Campaign resources for the following groups.
    • Law Enforcement
    • Convenience Retail Industry Professionals
    • Transportation Industry Professionals
    • Hospitality Industry Professionals
    • Youth Caretakers and Professionals
    • Student Leaders
    • Faith-Based Community Leaders

Blue Campaign offers a wide variety of human trafficking awareness materials to help educate the public to recognize indicators of trafficking and report suspected incidents to law enforcement. These materials are available at no cost to you.

To request materials, complete this form. Due to a high volume of material request orders, please allow Blue Campaign 4-8 weeks to fulfill your request and refrain from submitting duplicate orders.

Note that additional materials are available for download on Blue Campaign's Document Library page.

Many non-U.S. citizen victims do not have legal status in the United States, and this is a powerful way the trafficker controls victims. Immigration relief is a critical tool because it provides a way for victims to feel secure and stabilize their status in the United States. Without legal status, victims may not be able to stay in the United States, or they may be limited in their access to victim assistance services. Immigration relief can help stabilize a victim without legal status. 

Federal public benefits are available through Health and Human Services (HHS) for victims of a severe form of trafficking who have received certification from HHS. Minor victims (under 18) are eligible for federal public benefits through HHS immediately once they are identified as a victim, and do not need HHS certification.
