THE MAD TRAFFICKING REPORT - EPISODE #4
During the month of January, advocates, organizations, and individuals unite to raise awareness about the issue of human trafficking. While movements like #MeToo have started to bring crimes like sexual harassment and sexual assault out of the shadows, human trafficking largely remains hidden. Putting an end to human trafficking starts with acknowledging its existence.
The Department of Homeland Security’s Blue Campaign provides plenty of opportunities for individuals or organizations to raise awareness about human trafficking. The Blue Campaign’s Tools That Teach are highly visual, easy-to-comprehend resources explaining what human trafficking is and what you can do to stop it. You can download and share posters, videos, and infographics from the Blue Campaign website for free. For more in-depth information, check out their additional resources, including awareness videos, trainings, cards, pamphlets, toolkits, and more.
You can also spread the word by participating in the second-annual #WearBlueDay on January 11th. Simply take a picture of yourself, your friends, your colleagues, or your family wearing blue and post it online using the hashtags #WearBlueDay and #WeWearBlueBecause. Don’t forget to include a statement about why you are participating!
