January is Human Trafficking Month: What’s New With Blue?
The Final Countdown to #WearBlueDay Is On
President Biden has proclaimed that January is Human Trafficking Prevention Month, a time to bring attention to the crime of human trafficking.
On Tuesday, January 11, 2022, Blue Campaign invites you to shine a spotlight on human trafficking by participating in #WearBlueDay. Anyone can make a difference by raising awareness about this crime. It is as simple as wearing a piece of blue clothing and posting about it throughout the day on the social media platform of your choice. There are many ways you can get the conversation started:
- Take a selfie
- Gather family, friends, or colleagues for a group photo
- Share a video about why you wear blue
- Host an in-person or virtual event
However you decide to share your support, just make sure you use the hashtag #WearBlueDay. Stay tuned for what is coming up throughout the month by following Blue Campaign on social media (@DHSBlueCampaign on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram).
Blue Campaign Team Takes over Social Media This Week
Starting Monday, January 3, Blue Campaign team members will be featured on the Campaign’s Instagram and Facebook Stories. Team members will share what’s new with Blue, how it is combating human trafficking, and how you can get involved.
