January is National Human Trafficking Awareness Month 

January is National Human Trafficking Awareness Month. Trafficking in persons is a particular type of violence that is pervasive yet widely misunderstood. It affects every country, including the United States. In 2019, there were 11,500 tips of human trafficking reported to the U.S. National Human Trafficking Hotline. (Keep in mind, these numbers represent only those cases that were reported to the hotline. Actual numbers are probably much higher.)

The National Human Trafficking Hotline number is 1 (888) 373-7888.

Unfortunately, due to many misconceptions about this issue, trafficked persons often go unnoticed. For example, it is a common misperception that victims are locked away or hidden, but they are often in plain sight. Trafficking cases have been reported in visible settings such as bars and cantinas, carnivals and amusement parks, and hair and nail salons. Also, trafficked persons may not reach out for help because they may blame themselves, feel stigmatized, don’t know their rights in America, view their situation as their only means of survival, or have a complicated bond with their trafficker.
