January 11th is the day every year where awareness for human trafficking and sexual slavery is recognised. Millions of people worldwide are enslaved and as each year passes it gets worse. This day was made to increase the awareness so that an end to this allows individuals to obtain their rights and of course to make this world a safe environment.
The United States Senate started this day in 2007. However, back then January 11th was just an initiative for the U.S.
How to take part in this awareness day
- Giving an insight to the younger generation, this includes the stranger danger and knowing important phone number and addresses
- Donations can be done
- Use social media as a way to convey this day by simply #HumanTraffickingAwarenessDay
However, just remember it shouldn't just be one day for the world to have awareness for something like this.
