January 2020 is National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month, as decreed by presidential proclamation (see below). January is also known as Human Trafficking Awareness Month. It is a key time for us all as individuals to educate ourselves about human trafficking and crucially to learn to spot the signs of trafficking. It is also a time for us take these messages to our workplaces, our churches, our schools, our representatives and everywhere else.
At Hope for Justice, we investigate cases of human trafficking and work closely with law enforcement to rescue victims and ensure evidence is gathered against perpetrators to see them brought to justice. Our team of investigators is drawn from some of the most respected and prestigious law enforcement agencies in the country, such as the FBI and NCIS.
National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month, January 2020, culminates in the annual observation of National Freedom Day on February 1, 2020.
Hope for Justice has created a library of resources for your use during National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month, including downloadable posters that can be printed and social media graphics to share. Click below to download these assets. We believe that awareness leads to action – so everything you can do where you live to help raise awareness could ultimately help rescue more victims of human trafficking. We need more people to be aware of the facts and of the signs and to feel confident to report their concerns to an expert group like Hope for Justice.
