What is Make Human Trafficking History?
Make Human Trafficking History is an invitation to take action. As individuals, even our tiniest efforts can be powerful and profound. As a collective, we can change the world. Consider a trafficking victim could be your dearest parent, sibling, child or friend. It’s a reminder rescuing just one person from this heinous practice is a pressing, worthwhile endeavor. Join the movement to identify vulnerabilities, prevent victimization and aid in the recovery of those affected. Make human trafficking history.
The mission of the Make Human Trafficking History Initiative is to build a broad awareness of issues related to sex and labor trafficking and be an impetus for stamping out modern-day slavery.
