(Carl’s update note on November 8, 2012: The next National Human Trafficking Awareness Day will be January 11, 2013. You can start preparing now. Make a plan with your family, friends, church group, organization for how to spread awareness about slavery and human trafficking on and around that day. One way to prepare is to read a book or watch a movie to get educated, inspired, and be ready to join the movement.)
January 11th is National Human Trafficking Awareness Day in the U.S. by act of the Congress. President Obama has declared January to be Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention month.
