Human Trafficking Month

In 2007, the U.S. Senate designated January 11 as Human Trafficking Awareness Day. On January 4, 2010, President Obama issued a proclamation declaring January as National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month.

To commemorate these occasions, County departments and several of the County’s community partners in the fight against human trafficking are hosting free events, convenings, and trainings to raise awareness of how to prevent, identify, and report instances of human trafficking. For a list of events, training webinars and more hosted by the Federal Administration for Children and Families, click here.
