Human trafficking involves the use of force, fraud, or coercion to obtain some type of labor or commercial sex act and effects millions of men, women, and children worldwide.
National Human Trafficking Awareness Day is recognized each year on January 11th. In an effort to raise awareness, the Department of Homeland Security created the Blue Campaign which hosts events and educational activities, with the biggest being #WearBlueDay. On this day, they ask individuals to take photos of themselves, friends, family, and/or co-workers wearing blue and share them on social media with the hashtag #WearBlueDay.
