Human Trafficking Awareness Day 2012 ~ What You Can Do

It’s that time of year again – National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month. And today, January 11, 2012, is National Human Trafficking Awareness Day. So here are some things you can do today (and this month, and longer!) to help spread awareness about modern-day slavery and human trafficking and to help abolish it.

  • Educate yourself and others Human Trafficking is Modern-Day Slavery
  • Support organizations
    • By financially supporting organizations that are working to end slavery and human trafficking, you can help them protect the vulnerable, prevent slavery from happening, educate people, rescue and restore victims, and carry out justice.
    • I’ve compiled a “directory” of some excellent organizations and still have many more to add!
  • Pray
  • Sponsor an orphan
  • Stay updated
  • Stay connected
    • Join me (and others) on Twitter and Facebook to stay connected in the fight to end slavery and human trafficking.
  • Spread the word
    • Tell people you know about human trafficking and how they can get involved. The more people who know about this, the more can be done to stop it.

I hope this will help you become more aware of the reality of modern-day slavery and human trafficking and inspire you to spread awareness and join the fight for justice!
