For individuals everywhere, now is the time to learn about the way this crime intersects with our lives, and to learn what we can do to contribute to a solution. That requires sharing information about how consumer practices fuel the demand for forced labor, and being aware of this crime in our communities and of what to do if we see it.Check out the U.S. Department of State's Official Blog and recent post about National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month. The post emphasizes why now is the time to take action on trafficking, urges readers to educate themselves and others "about this crime," and provides resources and information about what local organizations are doing to raise awareness this month.
We're sharing this resource as part of National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month. Learn more about the month HERE and check back on this blog for more resources and ways you can take action.
