National Anti-Human Trafficking Awareness Day
January 11, 2020
National Human Trafficking Awareness Day is observed annually on January 11. Consider ways you can get involved and be a part of combating the heinous crimes of human trafficking in your local community or across the globe. Visit our Get Involved Tab at the top of our home page for ways you can make a difference.
“As we work to dismantle trafficking networks and help survivors rebuild their lives, we must also address the underlying forces that push so many into bondage. We must develop economies that create legitimate jobs, build a global sense of justice that says no child should ever be exploited, and empower our daughters and sons with the same chances to pursue their dreams. This month, I call on every nation, every community, and every individual to fight human trafficking wherever it exists. Let us declare as one that slavery has no place in our world, and let us finally restore to all people the most basic rights of freedom, dignity, and justice.”
-President Barack Obama
