President Obama signed a proclamation on January 4, 2010 declaring January as the “National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month.” One of the major highlights this month is National Human Trafficking Awareness Day this Monday, January 11! Help Polaris Project use this day to spread awareness and create action in the fight against modern day slavery. On Monday we will send out news, information, and updates about the issue and Polaris Project’s work through all of our social networking sites. Please help us spread the word about human trafficking to your own networks!
