The Blue Heart Campaign


On March 5th, 2009 The United Nations Office and Drugs and Crime (UNODC) Launched the Blue Heart Campaign against Human Trafficking in Vienna at the Women’s World Awards. This campaign was launched in recognition of the fact that women are the primary victims of this crime. The UNDOC urges people the world over to join them by changing your profile picture to a blue heart to help raise awareness of this terrible crime.
Human Trafficking is a crime that strips people of their rights, ruins their dreams and robs them of their dignity. It is a crime that shames us all. Human trafficking is a global problem and no country is immune. Millions of victims are entrapped and exploited every year in this modern form of slavery. To rally world public opinion against human trafficking, UNODC is launching the Blue Heart Campaign. By supporting the Blue Heart you raise awareness of this crime and join the campaign to fight it. The Blue Heart represents the sadness of those who are trafficked while reminding us of the cold-heartedness of those who buy and sell fellow human beings.
