January 11 is National Human Trafficking Awareness Day.
The Intercommunity Peace and Justice Center has put together a resource: Human Trafficking Prayer and Awareness Material. This document provides extensive information about human trafficking in a manner to help you understand your influence on slavery, not to create feelings of guilt, but to empower the making of informed purchasing decisions.
There are also suggestions for opportunities to make a difference. We invite you to spend some time reading the attachment and following the links in the “Take Action” section for insight into the complex life of mega corporations.
By working together, improvements can continue to be made, by people like us, who decide to make our voices heard because we realize “We are our sisters and brothers keepers.”

In 2007 the U.S. Senate designated January 11th as a National Day of Human Trafficking Awareness in an effort to raise consciousness about this global, national and local issue. President Barack Obama proclaimed January as National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month, 2016.
