Bringing awareness & how to help: Human Trafficking Awareness Day 2023


National Human Trafficking Awareness Day is a significant day of recognition as trafficking has a long-term impact on human lives, families and households, as well as communities across the globe. Right now, there are approximately 20 to 40 million slaves in the world, with approximately 80% of human trafficking today involving sexual exploitation, and 19% involving labor exploitation. Today’s observance of the illegal practice was implemented to raise awareness in regards to human trafficking, aid individuals and groups in identifying common signs of the practice, and reach victims with resources and support.
