January declared Human Trafficking Prevention Month

President Obama declared January National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month. While awareness of human trafficking is increasing there is still much work to be done to fight its occurrence. Polaris Project reports more than 12 million individuals are being exploited through sex and labor trafficking throughout the world. Through the tireless efforts of organizations like Transitions those who are affected by trafficking are finding sources of support. It is our hope that through developing a partnership with Transitions we are contributing to the fight against trafficking.

“The steadfast defense of human rights is an essential part of our national identity, and as long as individuals suffer the violence of slavery and human trafficking, we must continue the fight.” – President Obama
