National Human Trafficking Awareness Day: This year, National Human Trafficking Awareness Day is commemorated on Tuesday, January 11, 2022. The day’s goal is to raise awareness about the issue of human trafficking victims, as well as to promote and safeguard their rights. Despite the fact that the entire month of January has already been designated as National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month, this day is dedicated to raising awareness and preventing criminal practices.
The resolution designating January 11th as National Human Trafficking Awareness Day was adopted by the United States Senate in 2007. President Barack Obama committed the entire month of January 2010 to raising awareness and preventing human trafficking. Today, there are over 50 organized organizations fighting this illegal practice around the world, and more awareness has been raised than ever before.
