Human Trafficking Awareness Day

Today, January 11, is the international Human Trafficking Awareness Day.

Today is the day to remember victims of trafficking, to learn more about the terrible practice that occurs throughout the world, to have a conversation about it with your friends, family and co-workers and to continue educating yourself about trafficking.

Here are five things you can do today to promote awareness about trafficking or learn more about it:
1. Visit our website, and browse the many articles and informational pages.

2. Write a letter to your representatives - asking them what they are doing on trafficking or encouraging them to continue working to fight it.

3. Post "Human Trafficking Awareness Day" as your Facebook status, along with a link to more information such as our website or this blog.

4. Visit the Rescue and Restore website for more information about US trafficking, and learn how to recognize and report a suspected victim of trafficking so they can be helped.

5. Donate money to anti-trafficking groups to assist their ability in fighting this heinous crime against the basic rights of humans.
